The nobility of Italy and France collected Le Nove porcelain. The factory created models after leading Florentine sculptors’ most celebrated and popular work. The charm of the subject, the virtuoso modeling, the animated drapery, and the smooth glaze of these figures exemplify the refinement that the Le Nove factory could achieve at the end of the 1700s.
