The grouping show an intimate scene of a mother seated with her two children. The youngest is in her lap vying for her mother’s attention, as her older brother kneels beside them asking for the same. The figures are in dressed in the late neoclassical style with ruffle embellishments and intricately patterned fabric. The figures have excellent attention detail which is expected of Meissen porcelain. It is marked on the bottom with the crossed swords of Meissen in under glaze blue. There are also some impressed numbers on the bottom "101 51". Please note this figure is first quality Meissen with no hash marks on or near the crossed swords mark.
