    There are some finger missing but the whole is perfect, the number of seacreatures is enormus, look the tortoise that the haunted triton is riding (first picture). It is 31 cm high and the marks are exactly the same as in the page of Christies "LATE 19TH CENTURY, BLUE CROSSED SWORDS MARK WITH DOUBLE CANCELLATION, INCISED C.35, PRESSNUMMERN After the model by J.J. Kändler, adapated by Ernst Leuteritz, with two scantily-clad nymphs and a putto hauling a net containing fish and a young Triton holding a conch horn, the rockwork base modelled with reeds, shells, a lobster and a frog 12¾ in. (32.4 cm.) high "
    The enamel is different in every example on the net.
