Very rare antique Meissen porcelain figurine depicting a lady playing a wind instrument, possibly an early Baroque Period clarinet. Made in Germany in the 1800's. Hand painted and well glazed with superb detail. Fine delicate lace finish to her dress. Fruit and a sheep at her side. Marked with the Meissen crossed swords antique mark (first quality) under the base and impressed numbers (please examine the photos).
The figurine has significant damage. She has been broken and reglued across the waist. The clarinet has been broken and reglued as well as the hand holding the instrument. Both arms have been detached and reglued. A small chip to one finger holding the dress. Minor damage to the delicate lace endings in places. Please examine the photos for more complete detail.
Although there is a lot of damage, the figurine is a very worth while restoration project and still displays well for a very rare early antique Meissen figure.
Height: about 15.4cm (just over 6")
