Description

Vintage porcelain Capo di Monte figurine of an old woman with a crutch or staff  holding her hand out to beg and a bearded man with a musical instrument next to her.  It has the collectible Capodimonte mark on the back and also some markings on the underside.  There is an impressed 3 or 8 and the number 13 inside a blue mark that is too blurry to read, as shown in picture 3.  These standing figures with polychrome enamels in high fired finish would be a remarkable gift for that special someone.
 
I am way out of my knowledge range here.  I bought this at an estate auction in 1991 and aside from recognizing the Capodimonte mark I have learned little else about it.  This is a quality piece and the detail, along with the color is exceptional.  Delightful figural pair stands 6 1/2" tall and is in wonderful vintage condition.  There appears to be something impressed in the back, just below the woman's skirt, but I cannot make it out.  I welcome any information you may have on this quality piece, and would entertain offers.
