This Is A Portrayal Of Cupid Forging A Heart. The Meissen Model L 114 Was Made In The Late 19Th Century And It Has Still Retained The Good Look. The Porcelain Finish Is Still Smooth And There Aren€™T Any Scratches In It. This Figurine Does Have 2 Areas That Have Broken Off Which You Can See In The Pictures. One Broken Piece Is On The Bottom Of The Handle Of The Hammer And The Other Is The Bottom Of The Tongs Holding The Heart That Have Broken Off. This Cupid Originally Belonged To A Set Of 26 Figures, Which Was Molded By Heinrich Schwabe. It Took Him Over Three Years, From 1877 To 1880 To Make These 26 Figures. That€™S Because He Made All The 26 Figures, Including The Cupid With His Own Hands. As A Result Of The Handmade Design, Special Attention Has Been Paid Towards Every Little Detail Of The Cupid As Well. The Colors Are So Vibrant And You Can See The Individual Brush Strokes In The Hair And On The Wings. This Has Been Done With One Of The Best Artists And It Looks Really Amazing.
