German | c.1830
Stunning Meissen figural salt modeled as a reclining gentleman in 18th century attire holding a large, curving bowl with handpainted flower sprigs on the inside and applied flowers on the outside. Pink and green Rococo base with rich gold highlights.
Fabulous modelling of the man with pink breeches and flowers on his yellow jacket which has a lilac lining and gold buttons and trim. Underglaze blue crossed swords mark with 2872 and 'x' impressed to base. Minor losses.
