The detail on the clothing is stunning with the typical Bleu Celeste stripes on the young ladies dress decorated with floral design and with raised gilding originated only by the sevres factory and know as "Honey Gilding" The honey gilding continues onto the young man with elaborate gild to the overcoat of wonderful swags on green and also with the raised honey gild to the pink Pantaloon.
The players are seated on two king Louis chairs and playing on a French King Louis table .The piece is truly magnificent and i cannot Begin to truly express how wonderful this rare and most exquisite piece is. The detail on all of the lace on the young mans cravat and cuffs of the ladies dress are truly stunning. The whole piece is situated on an almostneo-classical base that is decorated with golden hand painted gilding.
The underside of the figurine has impressed numbers but no obvious manufacturers back stamp as i believe this is a very early piece or prototype of its time..with impressed inventory number "III" AND "12"
