African Group (cont)

'African in Boat'

'African Drummer'

There are two other model produced for the African Group which were probably experimental models. These were 'African in Boat' which measure approximately 6 to 7 inches and is of an African man in his boat. The second model is of an African man with a with drum (African Drummer). Both of these model are probably experimental so very few example exist

To the right is African Drummer.

There is speculation that Bossons made four experimental examples of this rare piece (in black colour).

The Drummer stands 10" high and 4 1/2" at the widest portion of the base. This piece is fired porcelain with Ivory Black and Gold leaf paint under glaze. Notice small Bossons sticker attached under base.

This is a white vitreous model of the Drummer. There are two known models in existence. The model never went into production.
