Meer informatie

We present a large porcelain candlestick, surrounded by two female beauties, on a raised round base with four indentations. The sculpture is extensively hand-painted in various polychrome enamel colours, including turquoise, pink, green in various shades, light blue, yellow, light purple, white, etc. The sculpture is made in high relief with an overlay of many handmade flowers and foliage. The two female statues were probably made in the moulle in separate parts, later combined into one whole. The candlestick itself has a pure white glaze, imposed in relief with polychrome flowers and volutes. Candlestick and figures stand on a raised more or less circular rocky base with brown earthy color with various volutes at the bottom and with four notches. Very numerous flowers and foliage are applied in relief and polychrome hand-painted. This figure has both neo-rococo and neoclassical (the 2 women) and even beginning art nouveau features. This is characteristic of the eclectic style that mainly manifested itself in the second half of the 19th century. The word “DEPOSE” is embossed in capital letters on the brown earthy color of the pedestal. The statue is glazed white at the bottom, except for the base ring, and is closed. The number “1141” has been pressed. The initials “Iml” or “Jml” are engraved by hand on the base ring. The meaning of this is unknown to me. A sticker indicates that the statue was purchased for 25,000 Bf at the time. This figure seems to me to be Bohemian in origin but given the word “déposé” it may be French in origin. The statue seems to me to date between 1850 and 1880.

Condition: as expected, several petals have broken off, but in total this is almost negligible, overall in very good condition.
