Antique 18th Century Derby or CHELSEA 5 3/4" Putti Cherub Figurine PROVENANCE

Seller: Top-Rated Seller setonyou (3,877) 99.3%, Location: Victoria, British Columbia, Ships to: CA & many other countries, Item: 352518705239 This auction is for a Rare Antique 18th Century Putti Figurine circa 1750 - 1800. The figurine measures approximately 5 3/4 inches high. The figurine is marked on the bottom with collection sticker from the MacHarg Collection. The figurine has suffered some damage over the years - including multiple chips, a glued repair to one of the birds in the nest and it appears that the base was broken off and reglued just above the putti's feet - please see close-up photos. The figurine exhibits three dirty looking circles on its base - for those possibly not as familiar with the early figurines, please read the following quote from "How to Identify Old China" by Mrs. Willoughby Hodgson page 69 - "...figures are generally marked by three 'thumb marks', or dirty looking patches also made by the tripod. These 'thumb marks' and blisters are often a help to identification, as like the productions of many other early factories, much Chelsea china was unmarked." Again, for those not so familiar with old Chelsea, they made a number of figurines in this style but different sizes and often holding different items i.e. grapes or flowers; however, I should mention that a fellow eBayer believes this is an Antique (circa 1780 - 1800) Derby figurine.
