Paris Porcelain Figurines J Petit
Based on famous Eighteenth Century paintings, these country lovers, a smitten swain and the bashful object of his affection, were created by the famous Paris porcelain factory of Jacob Pettit in the rue de Belleville around 1830 and probably were modeled by the sculptor Revenand. Their resplendent costumes, lavishly woven and embroidered, belie the couple's humble origins: these are no field hand and barefoot housemaid, but a pair of courtiers playing peasants. The vases measure approximately 8-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/4 inches wide by 3-3/4 inches deep. Excellent condition.
