Mounted on a later wood base
Mid 18th Century
Size: 18cm high – 7 ins high (max) – 13.5cm high – 5¼ ins high (figure)
This particular ivory figure is a depiction of a person in need whom even under the strictest 18th century conditions would have counted among the 'Wahre Arme' the true poor. There is little doubt that these ivories of 'picturesque' peasants influenced the early modellers of the porcelain manufactory of Meissen in Dresden.
