Antique Parian Bisque Venus+Cupid/Cherub Figure Minton?

This stunning beauty measures approximately 11.5"H x 4.25"L x 4.25"W, and portrays a figural group scene of what appears to be Venus? with Eros or otherwise known as Cupid ~ yet it also looks like it could represent one of the Four Seasons (i.e. Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter) ~ whatever the case may be, it is truly exceptional! I just wish I knew what she is holding (a paddle) & what the thing on the ground represents (pot? cauldron?). That said, I cannot say enough about the breathtaking minute detail, with not a thing overlooked ~ from their haunting countenances' with intaglio eyes to every single one of their individual features ~ superb! Furthermore, they're in excellent vintage condition, with just a bit of damage to the back of one of Venus's long curl of hair & the tip of the cornucopia that Cupid is holding (like someone tried to repair both with whiteout) ~ heads, hands, fingers, toes, clothing, arms, legs, hair, pot, faces, necks, coloring, detail, et al, perfect! They would make a wonderful addition to your exquisite collection, or else a fabulous gift for that Parian Fan just in time for this coming Mother's Day!

FYI: they're incised on the bottom of base with an M signature, along with three dots, the number 735, and what appears to be the blue sceptre mark of the Royal Porcelain Manufactory (

Any questions, please feel free to ask & I will answer to the best of my ability. S/h/i via Priority Mail will be $27.50 (they're very big & heavy) for those in the States, which includes a small fee for packing materials & listing. All sales are final. Thanks for understanding.
