Beautiful Antique French Parian Porcelain Sculpture of Child Gathering Grapes for wine making. This is so charming, the little one sits on the side of a large basket and is lifting up the lid to add the last plucked bunch of fruit. Produced by Meissen, Minton, Coalport, Copeland, Wedgwood, Sevres and many other high quality makers, these Parian decorative pieces exuded elegance, opulence and wealth. Great attention to detail makes this a valuable heirloom piece, it was a lengthy, complicated process to produce, this is one of the rarer to find designs.
The basket of this piece is so detailed, a deeply molded design, this is a luxury quality porcelain piece made in the very early 1900's. Pure white, in good condition, one of the grape leaves does have a missing tip as shown. Priced accordingly. A true find for your collection of French Parian ware.
