This is from the original Cybis edition of "Madonna with Bird" produced from 1956 to 1962 and created by Laszlo Ispanky. The quality that Cybis reached in those days was collected around the world. Unfortunately, in the late 1990s the quality went down, as did prices for wonderful Cybis porcelains. I have no doubt that these older Cybis pieces will regain their value, although I doubt if this will reach its original price of $1200.00. The later editions of this popular figure were smaller and without a wood base.
Country of Origin: United States of America.
Size: Approximately 11 1/2" tall, 7 1/2" at widest, and 5 1/4" deep on a solid wood base.
Condition: Very Good Vintage Condition.
Circa: Late 1950s.
