Description

Soft-paste porcelain figure of a Woman representing Spring.

Soft-paste porcelain containing bone ash, press-moulded, and lead-glazed on the visible surfaces. The circular base is unglazed underneath and has a central ventilation hole. The woman is seated on a low rock with an oval aperture in the back to take an attachment. Her feet are crossed and she rests her left elbow on a basket of flowers standing on the rock to the viewer's right. She wears a broad-brimmed hat, a bodice and skirt, and an apron partly filled with flowers. Her shoes each have a pompom on the top. On the viewer's right of her feet, there is another basket of flowers, and to the left further back, a straw beehive.
