Old Paris Bisque Limoges Porcelain Figurine ca. 1840

This auction is for an original circa 1840's Bisque porcelain figurine as described below from a recent appraisal by one of the Southeast's best-qualified antique and estate appraisers, Llewellyn M. (Kelly) Dykes. I encourage you to go to his website ( ) for his qualifications and resume'. I have also included a short manufacturer's history to help you better understand the background of this piece.The piece has a very low reserve (substantially under "fair mkt. value"). As noted in the description below, the base was professionally repaired many years ago. See pictures. The repairs are nearly invisible unless you look under the base. The appraisal reflects the value of the piece as repaired. Sale is final. Buyer pays shipping costs, insurance included. Payment accepted by PayPal, USPS money order or personal check (held for clearance). USA sale only. I will gladly answer any pre-bid questions or provide more pictures. This item is being sold as part of a fairly large estate-- more items will be listed soon. This is a great chance for any serious porcelain collector to own a really rare piece by a manufacturer (Henri Ardent) not often seen outside of museum collections. Thanks for looking
