Faience of Niderviller 18th century - Player of hurdy-gurdy

A beautiful statuette in faience of Niderviller of the 18th century, representing a player of hurdy-gurdy.

This statuette was part of the series of the daily life, carried out under the direction of the sculptor Philippe Arnold from 1759.

Philippe Arnold was trained by Guillaume Lanz in Frankenthal.
He will be the only sculptor of Niderviller from 1759 to 1780, when he left for Haguenau.

During his presence in Niderviller he created nearly 600 models, according to Ms. Chantale Soudée-Lacombe, composed of more or less important groups, isolated characters representing:

- gallant scenes,
- characters from the peasant life,
- allegories of the seasons,
- 4 parts of the world,
- cries of Paris,
- hunters,
- beggars,
- musicians
etc ...

The quality of these sculptures, the fineness of the dough, the colors and the design are a marvel that can be compared to Kandler's sculptures in Meissen.

Here we have a sculpture of everyday life depicting a hurdy-gurdy player.

This statuette bears a label from the Levy collection. This collection was partly exhibited in 1932 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

Good condition, some small covers on the arms and neck.
