Technical Summary

The similarity in modeling suggests that the figure was made from the same mold as 1942.9.594. The base is flat and unglazed and reveals clear traces of bivalve mold joins. The heads of both figures have been broken off, reattached, and repainted. There is a crack in the sash emerging from the left sleeve.
