Offered here for your consideration is a fine antique porcelain blanc de chine figurine. Modeled as an allegory of the sciences with two cherubs together with books, a globe, a scroll, and telescope.Simply a wonderful antique figurine! Late 19th or Early 20th Century. It is in overall, fair, as-pictured, used estate condition. We note losses to one cherub's telescope and the hand holding it, the pencil held by the other cherub, and the tip of the first cherub's toe. There is a re-glued section of one cherub's foot together with a noticeable chip and spot of loss. Otherwise, there are some very fine and light surface scratches, and other signs of expected light wear consistent with age. The base bears a blue underglaze scepter mark with a cancellation mark and several impressed numbers and cyphers.
