bibliography
d'Agliano, Andreina (ed). Porcellane Italiane dalla Collezione Lokar, Silvana Editoriale, Milan, 2013. Published with dual text in Italian and English. This figure and its pair are cited by Andreina d'Agliano pp.275-277: 'Two statues in soft porcelain and marked 'Jacques Boselly Joseppe Raibaud' indicating the years of their partnership survive from this period: they are now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, but were previously part of the Goldblatt Collection. The soft porcelain is white with hints of yellow, not unlike the soft porcelain produced in France. The applied colours are often those used on the Boselly maiolica, with a predominance of crimson and emerald green. The figures of a peasant girl dancing and playing the castanets, and of a peasant offering her flowers are also reminiscent of French porcelain. In particular the young man is derived from the same source as the figure in the ceramics museum in Sèvres and the one in the Fondazione de Mari in Savona.'
