Konigliche Porzellan Manufaktur (KPM), Berlin, Germany produced this series of White Zodiac Figurines. 4 1/2 inches Tall x 1 1/2 inches Wide. The majority of the Zodiac figures were painted. Blanc de Chine, all-white, is what KPM is the most famous for. This rare Scorpio is the tenth figurine from the series. He represents a boy in a jacket and hat. He is holding glass with wine in one hand and grape in another. This is allegory of October Sagitarius is carrying a musket and is marked, November, with the, The Archer, sign of Sagitarius near its base. Sagitarius has some factory roughness in glaze on side of body and tip of musket has been glued back on, I believe, otherwise very good condition. Blue, illegible, written mark inside base. Vintage.
