An unrecorded 18th century Derby figure of a dancer

after the original Andrew Planche dry-edged figure Dancing Girl possibly Columbine (circa 1752-1753) probably made from the same model, this one with a rare Rococo base in turquoise and pale green, she wears a pink bodice with gold lace and an elaborately moulded flared white skirt with red painted sprays of flowers, her left hand holding the left side of her dress aloft as if in mid-dance, the other hand raised above her head, reminiscent of the balletic Croise Devant

Patch marks to base

Circa 1764-1765

18 cm high

Restoration to right elbow and front foot

For the original Planche model see: Peter Bradshaw Derby Porcelain Figures 1750-1848 "Dancing Girl possibly Columbine" - page 37, plate 17 B11 and colour plate IV after page 100                        

And for another version of a similar model, this one holding a mask, see: Derby Porcelain the Golden Years 1750-1770 by Dennis Rice - page 87 plate 22
