This wonderful miniature bust is a perfect mate for the gorgeous Rudolstadt woman one listed separately. He has a wonderful, handsome face and countenance and his gold adorned dark burgundy cape are fantastic.
He has a few condition issues though. The crest of his hat has been broken and glued back and has a chip on its right side and there is a chip on the right side of his cape (mostly visible on the reverse side). The pointy tip of his cape on the left side has a fleabite size chip on the back side. Priced accordingly.
The colors are fabulous jewel tones and the pattern on his jacket is done with tiny dots of raised enamel.
Separately listed is a very, very similar piece (undoubtedly by Teplitz as well) that is in perfect condition. Also, female miniature busts are listed separately).
