Bohemian Royal Dux porcelain figure of a musician
Bohemian, late 19th Century
Height 80cm, width 27cm, depth 27cm
This charming porcelain figure depicts a Rococo style musician. The figure is by Royal Dux, which traditionally crafted such pieces from majolica, making the present piece an unusual example of its type. The musician is dressed in traditional garb, wearing green and red clothing accented with parcel gilding. He holds a guitar in his right hand, while he raises his left in a motion of dance. The figure stands on a naturalistically rendered base, littered with leaves and flowers.
