Small Copeland Parian figure of a boy
A charming small Copeland Parian figure of a boy with a hat full of fruit on his lap, holding an apple in his left hand and seated on an upturned wicker basket. This figure is illustrated in Robert Copeland's book where it is stated that it is almost identical to a Derby porcelain figure. Marked 'COPELAND' to the base with 'E' and '+' symbol. Height 13.5 cm (5.3").
Condition. There appears to be something missing from the right hand of the boy (possibly another piece of fruit) and there is some damage to the tips of the fingers of the right-hand. No other damage. Please see the photos.
