Footnotes

  • The original source of this model is a bronze by Jacques Sarazzin of circa 1640, see Herbert Keutner, Sculpture, Renaissance to Rococo (1969), pl. 298. Another Vauxhall version exists with putti feeding flowers to the goat, the two versions probably representing Summer and Autumn. See Peter Bradshaw, 18th Century English Porcelain Figures (1981), p 231, pl 136 for a group sold in these rooms on 24 January 2007, lot 52. The same model was also produced at Plymouth, one of a number of Plymouth figures derived from subjects first made at Vauxhall
