Antique Ginori Porcelain Statues

$8,400.00

Description

Two similar groups of Ginori porcelain figurines from the 18th century. These two figural groups feature courting couples in the grey porcelain typical of the 18th century hard-paste porcelains made in the Ginori Doccia factory. The factory created models after the most celebrated and popular work of leading Florentine sculptors. The virtuoso modeling of the animated drapery and smooth glaze of these figures exemplifies the refinement that the Ginori factory could achieve.

History

Ginori porcelain was collected by Medicis and most of the nobility of Europe. Napoleon’s wife, Marie Louise of Austria, ordered an enormous service set that survives to this day.
