Porcelain Statue In Simulated Situation 19th century

This rare statue represents a man in clothes from the end of the 18th century.
The work is very rich in detail, we will notice the lace, embroidery, flowers on the bicorn hat and on the lapel of the frock coat, we will also notice the chatelaine and the eyeglasses hanging from the waistcoat, and many other details. The face and hands are matte finish unlike the rest which is dressed in a shiny glaze.
The rarity of this object is in addition by its use; the statue represents this seated man and is made to be placed anywhere as a trompe l'oeil of a real movement of life.
In the house where it comes from the statue was on the piano.
Which corresponds well to the character, because we called these men the "pretty hearts", presenting well, dressed in a gallant way and pushing the song for their admirers. They were often soldiers.
There were objects with the same principle of situation, it was monkeys climbing on lianas that were suspended from the cords of curtains which simulated lianas, these statues were in porcelain or earthenware, our statue of man by his unique rarity can be an order and the character a truly existed man.
French work, there are only hollow figures as marks.

Very good condition for this kind of object, tiny chips in the flowers and an old break in the neck on the right knee, these little accidents are invisible in situation
