This is a delightful sculpture that is humorous as well a magnificent incredibly detailed creation. Note the three birds about to eat an ear of corn, with the "Second Course" being the worm just spotted on the corn.

Excellent Condition.

This particular piece is beautifully and vividly colored.

Borsato porcelain sculptures are considered the cream of Capodimonte porcelain.

The book Capodimonte Collectibles, published in 1990, presents a fascinating history of Capodimonte porcelain, and clearly indicates that some 20th Century artists were included in the term "Capodimonte." Antonio Borsato is featured over and over again as a prime example. His work is pictured on Pages 53, 58, 63, 64, 117, 118, 134, 139, and 153. His trademark (artist's palette) is also shown.

This large and complete book outlines the original history, and the various trademarks used for this umbrella term;
from unmarked pieces, to a fleur-di-lis in a circle, to the crown with the N, to more modern marks which this book
includes the Borsato trademark.

The world lost a great artist when Antonio Borsato was killed in an auto accident in 1982. Borsato worked endlessly to make each creation a melody of color and movement. Borsato originals are sculptured in the full-round with no blank surfaces, with the entire piece completely hand colored with brilliant artistry. All stages were attended to by Antonio Borsato himself. It is assuring to note that no Borsato was in mass production.

Borsato is known as the Michelangelo of the 20th Century. His works are displayed in the Vatican, museums, and many significant private collections. He studied under the great Cacciapuoti early on, but many believe he far surpassed his mentor, becoming the greatest of the Capo-Di-Monte genre.

Borsato works of art are irreplaceable just as are the works of other Old Masters. His impeccable faithful adherence to detail, a wisp of hair, facial expression, even eyelashes, gestures, whimsical humor, anatomical perfection, combine to endow each of Borsato's works with breathing realism.

A Borsato art treasure is an exquisite masterpiece to be cherished as an heirloom for future generations.
