For those who don't know the story:
AMPHITRITE was the goddess-queen of the sea, wife of Poseidon, and eldest of the fifty Nereides. She was the female personification of the sea--the loud-moaning mother of fish, seals and dolphins.

When Poseidon first sought Amphitrite's hand in marriage, she fled his advances, and hid herself away near Atlas in the Ocean stream at the far ends of the earth. The dolphin-god Delphin eventually tracked her down and persuaded her to return to wed the sea-king.
This figure is decorated in underglaze high temperature colors. It is illustrated in John and Griselda Lewis "Pratt Ware 1780-1840," Page 273.She is in great condition and stands 5 3/4" tall.
Circa 1800
