Delicate porcelain; delicate details; the word delicate must be used to describe this porcelain figurine by A. Belcari. The figurine depicts a couple from the turn of the century, arm-in-arm. He is dressed in knickers, bow tie, argyle sweater, flat cap, and tied shoes. The detail of the cap, sweater and shoes is shown in the porcelain. The rolled newspaper under his arm has the banner, Time. The young woman has blonde curly hair caught up in a bow. Her dress has a four button ruffled bodice with ruffles around the shoulders. The full sweeping skirt is flairing behind to show her pantaloons. A large ribbon wraps around her waist ending in a large bow. Her shoes also have bows. The facial details of each are finely executed with blue eyes, chiseled noses and serene red mouths. Most of the figure has been left in the matte bisque state, but a few details have a glossy glaze finish to bring attention to detail - his coat, her hair bow, and his shoes. The porcelain base is embossed with 1984 and DEAR ARNART. The wooden base measures 5.5 x 3.75 inches. The figures measure 8x4 inches. There is a gold tone metal plaque on the front of the wood base with A. Belcari. The entire figurine is in excellent shape with no flaws detected.
