Bow figure of Smell, from a set of the senses, modeled as a seated lady with a basket of flowers on her lap, with several clumps of flowers growing around her feet and one by her side, her right hand raising a picked bloom to her nose, set on a high rococo scroll base, the whole painted in bright enamels, her dress in particular with groups of vivid flowers including tulips.
Interesting underglaze blue mark of a sword and a dot,
Circa 1765

References: The Five Senses are a rarer product from Bow than say the Four Seasons. This figure belongs to the earlier 1750s models, but has been used 10 years later, as is evident by the high rococo scroll base. Another interesting difference is the earlier version

Condition: good condition, minor losses to flowers only
