The sisters grasp each other's hands. As their hair blows in the wind. Their brother in his cute sailor shirt has manufactory holes.I've made him a little fishing pole to hold. Intaglio eyes, two stroke brows and lids. Carved open mouths, and perfect little doll faces. Heavy, solid, it weights over 7 pounds! In excellent condition as well, with just a slight bit of gold rub to the detailing on the clothes, and a few tiny inconspicuous firing flaws which you always find on these old German bisques. Inspired by this Victorian painting called Seahorses. The children are using their imaginations and playing as children do. The boy is imagining he is riding a cart pulled by horses; his sisters have happily stepped into this role. Since they are at the sea, the girls are "sea" horses. It would be fun to set up the statue like it is in the illustration; there are factory holes in the boy's hands and also under both girls' arms meant for just this purpose.
Lovely on a mantel or console with the framed print behind it. Quality old-world workmanship - look at the carefully carved detailing. And note how the red strap is artfully. Threaded through an opening in the beautifully modeled hand. I've had this in my collection a very long time.
