CHARMING LARGE 19TH CENTURY CONTA & BOEHME OF POSSNECK CHERUB FIGURINE
Charming Conta & Boehme of Possneck Cherub figurine.
Manufactured by Possneck of Thuringia porcelain factory around the period c1870. The company itself was founded in 1790, so this figurine could possibly be slightly earlier. In good condition, with minor chips or tiny loss of petals as is normal with these delicate and beautifully modelled figures.
Small firing crack to the rear of the base.
This is a particularly large figure with great facial modelling, two tiny nicks to the hat rim otherwise incredibly good condition given its age.
Clearly marked to the base with the maker's mark of the period.
