This would appear to be the third version of the Harlequin bagpiper. The earliest version of this figure has his feet extending beyond the supporting base, tends to be wearing a tricorn hat and has no flowers applied to the base. See lot 1, this sale, and Meredith Chilton, Harlequin Unmasked, The Commedia dell'Arte and Porcelain Sculpture, Singapore, 2001, pp. 294-295, nos. 73-75 for the early version and pp. 302-303, nos. 87 and 88 for similar models to the present example.
