Her arm about his shoulders, his arm around her waist. Looking at the modelling of the two arms and the appropriate creasing to the clothing displays the work of a master modeller and this is seen further in the realistic treatment in depiction of the wearing of the clothing.

The two figures are held in place by the visible bole for the man whilst the woman is placed on a concealed bole and it is this which supports both the figure and her dress particularly during firing.
Perhaps the model by Lueck of a nobleman and his wife quarreling (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York accession no.: 1974.28.133)is similar in sentiment to this group.
