Vintage Porcelain Putti on Boot Planter


Brand Etsy

This is a vintage porcelain boot with figural putti on it. The putti on holding a pink ribbon and the boot is decorated in addition with a raised flower. The piece is glazed in tones of green, pink, red, yellow and accented in gold. It measures 7 1/4 in height to the top of the upper putto. I havent found any maker marks, however, I havent removed the green felt on the underside, so it is difficult to know whether any may be present. As far as age, I would think 1940s/50s. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or pronounced wear.
This is a great addition to either a china shoe or putto/cherub collection!
