Copeland parian figure group 'Love Story'
A charming Copeland parian figure group of a courting couple beneath a tree. This group was first produced in 1865 and was sculpted by William Beattie. In Robert Copeland's book this is given the title of 'Love Story'. Marked 'COPELAND' on the back of the base. Height 22.6cm (8.9").
This must have been a complex figure group to produce. Illustrated as plate GP43 in Robert Copeland's book on Copeand Parian.
Condition. This figure group is in very good condition with with only minor losses to the bocage and a small and shallow chip to the man's tricorn hat. Please see the images.
