Antique Dresden Victorian Figural Group Germany Bohne

This is a large and amazing hand painted porcelain figurine depicting a Victorian lady and gentleman in love. Look at those faces! T is an open bird cage next to the young man and he is holding a yellow bird to the woman. He has his other arm around her shoulders. His pants are lined with applied flowers and t is one on each shoulder as well. The lady is holding a wreath of applied porcelain flowers and t is a lamb at her side. T is a basket on the base which is overflowing with porcelain roses. This piece is in exceptional condition for age. I can see no lace damage, although I could feel a few small rough edges on some folds. The folds are very close together and full. The only real damage I could see is a broken singer on her right hand. Please enalrge photos to get an idea of the beauty of this grouping, although my photos do not do it justice. It is marked on the bottom with a blue crown over an N, the mark of Ernst Bohne Söhne (1854-1921?), Thuringia. T is also Made in Germany in a circle, and in red is what looks like 16/LP. It measures about 9" high and the base is 10.5" x 7.5". Please email me if you would like additional photos. I will be adding more beautiful antiques figurines on Sunday, March 23.
