Group in porcelain bisque called "Triumph of children harvesters". It represents children carrying a vine on which one of them triumphs with a ewer and a glass of wine. Some of them seem to be drunk, like one who has fallen and is trying to get up.
This amusing porcelain sculpture highlights the harvest, an important moment in the agricultural season. As it was an intense collective work, it was accompanied by many celebrations in the villages. For this reason, the harvest is often associated with festivity and drinking. This small representation is a moral criticism by the bourgeoisie of the excesses of the rural population of the 19th century.
It is a work of the mid-nineteenth century.
