Fine Porcelain and Pottery - Lot 264

A rare set of Derby figures from the Four Quarters of the Globe series c.1760, emblematic of Asia, Africa, America and Europe, each with varying attributes of their Continent, raised on low bases applied with flowers and leaves, small damages and restorations, 24.8cm. (4)

A series of adult models of the Four Quarters of the Globe was first created by Kändler at Meissen around 1745, and adapted a few years later by Meyer using children instead. Meyer's series was copied at Chelsea, and it is likely that this Derby series derives from Chelsea rather than the German originals.

Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000
Hammer Price £ 2,800
