This statuette is one of a number of della Robbia reductions of Donatello's lost statue Dovizia (Abundance), a work of about 1430 that stood on a column in the Mercato Vecchio in Florence. A child who originally grasped our Dovizia's skirt has since broken off; his feet have left an impression near the frog at right.
