Minton parian statue "Dorothea" by the famous artist John Bell. This is an impressively large, fine 19th century Victorian Parian statue of a lovely young woman, sitting on a large rock, with her clothing pulled up to mid-thigh and her shoes beside her. She has a bundle next to her, she is leaning over and looking sideways anxiously. She has very long flowing hair and a finely detailed jacket, one arm is crossed in front of her holding up her clothes. This Dorothea was a character in " Don Quixote" and this statue is modeled from the one by the well known British, Victorian artist John Bell and is so marked. The English registration mark on the side is for August 19, 1847. She is in very good original "as found" condition with a tiny flake on the curved part of her jacket collar and a small slightly grey line on her opposite shoulder which I do not believe is damage but a firing line. She retains her exceptional, pure white color. Fully marked for the fine English porcelain manufacturer, Minton, on the base and side. 14" tall x 5 1/2" wide x 7" deep.
