Antique French Porcelain Figurine Exquisite Grouping Handpainted *mint* Dubois ? For Sale
From my 30 +++ years of my personal collection. Large Exquisite French Porcelain Group. This group is of 3 women and 1 man around a parlor table. Very vibrant colors. Measurements of the baseapprox. 11 1/2" long by 8" wide. Man figurine stands approx. 8 3/4" high. Woman in back stands almost 8 3/4" high. Woman sitting in front measures approx. 6 3/4" at highest point. Woman sitting in back measures approx. 6 3/4" at highest point. Parlor table approx. 3" high. (Not including items on table). The underglazed blue mark is apparently Vincent Dubois (1771 - 1840). The blue mark is two crossed lines or bolts with feathered ends. The blue feather is well defined. There is a round brownish circle with a Y demarcating 3 initals F,B. & S. (I am guessing that these are the artists that worked on this piece and it is of an older date rather than the earlier time. On the bottom is "Made in France" in blue. Vincent Dubois established in 1773 a hard-paste factory, using for his mark two crossed branches with leaves, in allusion to his name. They are sometimes called pointless arrows. This porcelain group is in absolutely mint condition. If I wanted to be critical (and I will), there is a "flea-bite" on the black paint of the man's left shoe. (Shows best in photo #5.....left black shoe, you see a white spot). I have scrutinized thoroughly. This is all I can find. An absolutely exquisite porcelain. PLEASE TAKE A PEEK AT MY OTHER ITEMS LISTED.
