A young country maiden as depicted by the highly regarded Belgian sculptor Gustave Van-Vaerenbergh (1873-1927).
As were so many during the Art Nouveau era, she is styled as a "Porteuse d'eau" or water carrier. Wearing a long dress and a wide-brimmed hat to protect her from the summer sun, she is carrying her two vessels to the well.
A terracotta figure, nicely painted in shades that have stood the test of time very well, still retaining their strength of colour.
Dating from the very early 1900's and around 50 cm high.
