Fragonard Prototype

Carved by Master Carver David Lawrence, Fragonard was produced in England, as a small Treasure Jest. The Fragonard prototype offered here has the pig holding a beer mug, instead of a bunch of roses, as in the production box.

Fragonard was issued in the spring of 2004, as a fixed edition of 2500 pieces worldwide. Only 250 were made with the beer mug, this being the first prototype.

Fragonard HK Secrets:
(Production Box)
Fragonard is a famous perfumery in France. A lovelorn pig has decided he'll need a large bottle of the wonderful scent to conceal the odor of the sty while on his romantic escapades. One trotter clutches the "PIG BREEDER'S GAZETTE" - has he been reading the personal ads? In the other trotter he holds a bunch of roses. The sack in front of him contains "Pork Scratchings," a fried pig skin "snack" often found for sale in pubs. One evening at the pub David's friend broke a tooth while munching on scratchings. On the interior we find a tooth and the carving "No Wis." This is the 123rd box figurine David has carved for Harmony Kingdom.

Fragonard Prototype The carving detail on this prototype Fragonard is wonderful! From the tips of hooves, to his expressive face, this fellow is quite the charmer. He will steal your heart!

Fragonard has all the hallmarks inscribed on the rim of the lid. Neither the lid nor the base are marked with the crown stamp.

This incredible auction is for the first prototype box figurine, of the extremely rare Fragonard with beer mug! The bottom of the base is marked: DL PIG P #001 Cheer. Perhaps the word 'cheer' refers to a toast he's making with the mug of ale.
