Absolutely amazing porcelain set featuring a centerpiece bowl and seven separate dancing maiden figurines. The bowl is fashioned in a column motif complete with swags and garlands. Would be perfect for flowers, candies, or fruits. Atop the bowl are two maidens in mid-dance, with their ribbons fluttering and robes rippling.

The seven additional maiden figurines are also dancing, their dresses and robes billowing behind them. One is lifting a pair of doves, another is swinging a sash. One is carrying a rose garland while another plays her finger cymbals. One maiden is missing her instrument. Dove figurine is slightly whiter color than other.

All are marked on the bottom with a blue N and the five point crown.

Great antique condition, some firing cracks on the bowl.

Italy, end of 19th century.

Size: Bowl h. 12", w. 14", d. 8.5"

Figurines vary between 8" and 10" h.
