I am adding many German figurines this week. This is a stunning hand painted porcelain figure of a beautiful woman with a basket full of apples(?) in one arm and one apple in her other hand. She has a beautiful face with delicate features, blue eyes and light brown hair, individually painted. This piece is painted with rich colors and the porcelain is finely molded. She is in excellent condition except her left pinky has been glued back on. Please enlarge all photos for details and to appreciate the beauty of this piece. She is marked on the bottom with the blue crossed pitchfork mark of Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanfabrik (1767- 1800), Volkstedt , Thuringia , Germany. There is also a red marking that looks like 32, and impressed 285 over 29. She measures about 10" high.
Payment is due within 3 days of auction end. I do combine shipping whenever possible. If postage is less than expected, I do refund the difference. I only add $1 to help towards the cost of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc.
