This is an extremely nice example of a Bow porcelain figure of winter from the "Rustic Seasons" group. It depicts an older man wearing a cowled garment, sitting on a mound of rocks, and warming his hands over a brazier. The brazier is set amidst flowers and leaves, with the whole scene raised on four scroll feet.

The piece is 6 1/2" tall, and is in overall excellent and exceptional condition. There are several minor chips to two of the leaves and a flower. There is also glaze dirt or wear to the top of the head, a not uncommon occurrence, and easily fixed, if one so desires. (Note that the leaf pointing down to the front left leg is not broken, but was intentionally sculpted to curl under.)

A charming and uncommon figure that would enhance any collection, and it has the superb provenance of being from the Antique Porcelain Company.
