Antique 19thC French Faience Lady & Gent Figurine Figure Fayence Figur France #2. This product data sheet is originally written in English. A faience figurine made by one of the French faience makers in the 19th century I believe.
It does have the mark for Hannong / Strassburg but I don't think it is quite that old. The figure is of a couple with the lady standing next to a tree trunk leaning on a basket while the gentleman is sitting down playing the bagpipes/ There is a dog chilling on the ground next to a hat and it has a nice rocky base with some greenery to it. The lady is nicely dressed as is the gentleman.
This type of theme one sees quite often by French makers in both figures in porcelain as well as faience and painted on plates, etc. Probably based on Boucher paintings or something along those lines.
The detail of the modeling and hand painting is quite nice. The figure is in great condition with some of the usual glaze / paint flaking normal to antique faience pieces and I believe the outstretched arm of the lady has been restored though to a very high standard so it is not obvious at all. The figurine displays very nicely! The piece is marked in blue as shown. The figurine is about 9 inches tall, 7.625 inches wide and 5.625 inches deep.
