Description

Hard-paste porcelain, painted in enamels and gilded

Hard-paste porcelain, painted in green, red, flesh pink, brown, and brownish-grey enamels and gilded. The figure stands on an approximately round, shaped base with a scrolled edge picked out in gold. The nymph stands on her right leg with her left extended in front of her. Her left arm is by her side and her hand holds a vertical spray of leaves. Her right arm is bent at the elbow and in the hand she holds a standing dish bearing leaves. The upper part of her body is bare, and round. The lower part has a green robe with a white lining, divided at the front to reveal her legs and falling down to the ground at the back. On her head she wears a garland of leaves and she has a leaf necklace supporting a medallion with a relief of a goat, the zodiac sign for Capricorn.
