    Very nice and something a bit different. Commercial piece or a one-off?

    A very unusual figure, and very nice. It's odd that you describe him as a " Town Crier" , since he's closely based on a cavalry trumpeter in a series of paintings by Pieter de Hooch from the 1660s.Perhaps something got lost in translation. But whatever you call him , very nice.

    I don't know from wich paintings came from, it was made by a litle italian brand, now close. The salers told me that all the material was sold to a british salers, the originale Name was: banditore rinascimentale.

    I beg your pardon, my mistake, it was Gerard ter Borch who was the painter. Here he is...

    The outfit is typical of mid-17century trumpeters, in the livery coat . The fur hat is unusual, they mostly wore hats.
