This group was assembled, probably by Peter Anton Seefried, with slight variations from Bustelli's original figures. The right-hand figure is the same as lot 50, and for a coloured example of the left-hand figure in the Pflueger Collection, New York, see Hugo Morley-Fletcher Early European Porcelain & Faience, German Porcelain Catalogue, Vol. I (London, 1993), pp. 176-7. The Pflueger figure's pose is the same as the present figure with the exception of the arms. The base of the Pflueger figure is very similar to the base of this group; both are curved at the back and both have pierced apertures. It appears that, as suggested by Morley-Fletcher, these figures and groups were probably made to be supported by brackets in curved wall niches. Another similar example of the left-hand figure was sold in these Rooms on 28th March 1978, lot 174, and is now in the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum, Munich.
