This is a magnificent, rare, highest quality fired porcelain sculpture by Capodimonte artist Sandro Maggioni. A young girl delights in riding a rocking horse. The artist's unique style and talent for beautifully capturing minute details are evident in this finely chiseled sculpture. The piece is signed and dated 1974.A few years back while moving, the bow on the little girls head got damaged. I had it restored, and at first glance the repair is not readily visible: Please see photos.
The repair does not detract from the exquisite charm of this piece. This is a fairly large piece measuring 8 3/4 inches tall x 9 3/4 inches at the widest point.
