Meissen Figurene Of Shepherd Holding Lamb, Correct Mark, 2nd Half 19th Century For Sale

Meissen Figurene Of Shepherd Holding Lamb, Correct Mark, 2nd Half 19th Century

Description: Here is a Meissen Classic of a shepherd holding his little lamb with one hand and his staff with the other. This figurine dates to the period 1870-1900, and is correctly marked under the base and under the glaze. Also present under the glazed base is the impressed number 94, and a series of more shallow marks that are very hard to see. One of these may be a decorator's mark. There is also what appears to be a very small red number 7 to the left of the crossed swords mark. I have done my best to capture some of these marks in my photos.
This figurine measures 6.75 inches high (17.15 cm) , the slightly oval base is about 2.5 inches by 2.75 inches (6.35 cm x 7 cm) and the maximum span of the piece is about 3.5 inches from arm to arm (8.9 cm). This figurine weighs 14 oz, or 393 grams.
Condition: The only issue I could find is where one end of the shepherd's staff handle seems to have broken off from inside where his hand is gripping it. Otherwise this figurine has exceptional hand painting, great color and a perfect glaze. Even the porcelain staff is so well textured and colored that it looks like it could have been made of wood! What's more this pull is an a very sharp one in my opinion.
I want to add here that I have an outstanding Meissen restorerer, who I am sure would do a flawless and undetectable job adding back the missing little piece of the handle. If the winner would like, I can get a restoration quote and would be happy to get this done. However, the typical wait time at my restorer's workshop is about 8 weeks, so you'd have to be patient. But his work is worth the wait.
Payment, Returns and Shipping Policies:Please pay by paypal within 24 hours of winning the sale.Important:I do not accept payment by e-check because of the long wait time for clearance and the technical problems that can result with this method. Also important: I do not end sales early out of consideration to all buyers!

"Buyer's Remorse," also known as the spouse doesn't like it, or it doesn't fit my decorating scheme, etc., etc., is not a valid reason for a return.

I will ship to Canada. Canadian buyers should request a shipping quote if this cost concerns them.International buyers are welcome.I am an experienced international shipper. Priority mail shipping to most of Europe is estimated to cost about $45. Foreign buyers are advised to get a shipping quote from me before offerding.
Final Comment: Not all Meissen figurines are decorated with the skill of this particular one. Yes, decorator quality does vary, even in Meissen!
I am starting this sale at $200, which I consider to be a very reasonable opening offer for this figurine. There is . As a qualified appraiser and dealer here in the Seattle area for almost 30 years, I can say that whoever gets this figurine will be very happy with it, especially if you need someone experienced to care for your sheep!!!!
