Derby Figure Of A Zither Player Mounted As A Lamp
England Ca. 1780
A lovely depiction of a young woman playing a zither on a high
style rococo gilt and white scrolled base. The stand was custom made in the 1st half of the 20th century.
Small losses to some flower petals and a few leaf tips. One branch is shortened. The trailing pink head ribbon is repaired with a staple in the middle. The ribbon repair is the most obvious and as it is on the back, an average observer would not notice it.
