Starting price: 75.00 EUR

Offered by: Ebay seller jack_russel, Seraing, Belgium
Comments: Interesting bisque figure of a lacemaker. Some damage – hand reattached and a few chips. I haven’t seen this one before, looks quite high quality. The gold crown with the P below is found in Moschendorf factory works from Bavaria, although the mark in pieces I’ve seen is more complex. But it is a possibility; seller says the piece is German. The lacemaker appears Flemish. I’ve purchased excellent lacemaker figures from this seller before.

Comments: Round brass Briggs Teneriffe loom, mounted on an original cushion. The wheels come up occasionally, the cushion is quite rare. One set was sold about a year ago with a blue cushion. Seems to be some moth? damage to the cushion bottom, and the printed name is faded but readable.
