Further information

This figure, together with two others in the Reed Collection (L2012.66 and L2012.67), were adapted from prints in the ‘Recueil de cent estampes représentant différentes nations du Lévant (Collection of 100 prints representing different eastern nations)’ published in 1714 –15 by Charles de Ferriol, French ambassador to the Ottoman court. They were all probably modelled by Kändler and Reinicke. Because of uncertainty as to the model number this figure can be dated either c1745 or 1750.
