Click image for detail

A very unusual and interesting 19th Century Bisque Porcelain Figure, a sweet young woman with her flute, at her feet her favorite sheep,  quite rare and wonderful! Most likely a decorative spill vase, she was encased in shells at her feet long ago, perhaps by a young woman who was enamored by all things ocean, as most Victorians were.  Biscuit porcelain is referred to as bisque or parian, unglazed, it has a matte finish.

This treasure was handpainted with a blush of color in just a few places, the young woman's hair, her face, and her shoes have been painted for detail, as has her sheep friend. This makes a beautiful statement when she is displayed with a collection of Victorian shell work boxes and frames, surrounded by your collection of shells gathered on vacations. She is most likely English, I purchased her at an English antique show. Measures .
