Guido Cacciapuoti (Italian School) was certainly an artist who was well-respected and whose work is always in demand. His work belongs in every serious porcelain collector's treasured pieces. In fact, he was mentor to Antonio Borsato. (Many of you know that I have had an extremely large collection of Borsato's works, and still have many that I am slowly listing.) His ceramic sculptures were mainly in gres. He specialized in animals, and is considered the best Italian animalist of the late19th Century into the early 20th Century. He was featured at the Treviso Art Show in 1915. This precious mother and baby elephant sculpture is a fine example.
