Miniature Derby Porcelain Enamelled Figurine Turk Incised No 3 Antique 1770 AF

A charming and unusual antique miniature or toy Derby porcelain figure of a Turk that has been hand painted in polychrome enamel colours and is incised on the base "No 3". The figurine is 2 3/4 inches (7 cm) high. We have seen later versions of this figure that are larger and incised No.63.

His face has a quizzical look and he is sporting a moustache. He is dressed in a knee length white and gilded floral tunic under a long light blue cloak which has a green lining and is wearing short red ankle boots. On his head he is wearing a form of turban or caouk ( the headgear of lawyers, civil servants and men of the pen.)  The base has a crimson ground  and is a round shape with rococo moulding and gilded highlights.

This interesting lovely antique  18th century figure dates from around 1770 in the Georgian period and during the reign of King George III.

Item condition: This figure been in the wars (possibly the Russo-Turkish War of 1768–1774!)  His head has been off and glued back in place, there is a chip to the back right of his cloak, his right forearm has been replaced (restored) as has the back half of the base. Please see the images. 

Despite this damage this is still a great antique miniature to add to any collection of early English porcelain, Derby figures, enamelled porcelain figurines Georgian or 18th century porcelain.

Height 2 3/4 inches (7 cm) high.
Base diameter 1  1/8 inches ( 2.7 cm)
Total weight 32 grammes unpacked.
