Voigt Sitzendorf Porcelain Figural Group - Courting Couple

SOLD! Voigt Sitzendorf Porcelain Figural Group - Courting Couple
Offering a fabulous porcelain figural group from the Sitzendorf Porcelain Manufactory featuring a young courting couple sitting at the base of a tree stump and atop a rococo pedestal, both subjects dressed in 18th century costume. The man wears a tricorne hat, with hands gently extended, as if to touch the basket of two small birds perched on the young lady's hip. To her other side and at her feet sits her little, ever-loving, loyal dog.

The design of this figurine suggests it could serve as a lamp base, with some modification. (There is no hole at the side of the base for wiring to exit.) The hole runs up through the tree stump to the point where the branches extend out; however, at 5mm in diameter, it may well be too small to accommodate a lamp wiring post. On close inspection, there appears to be a metal rod, presumably for reinforcement, in the upper portion of the tree trunk.

Standing approx. 8-1/2 inch high, with a base diameter of 4-3/4 inch, this beautiful group figurine is marked with Rontgen's mark #2316, the mark first used in 1902 by Sitzendorf Porcelain Manufactory formerly Alfred Voigt AG, which produced decorative porcelain pieces in the Meissen style. In excellent condition, with no nicks, chips, cracks, or repairs noted, only a hint of loss to the gilt trim and hand-painted decoration.
