Boleslaw Cybis founded Cordey China Company in 1942 in Trenton, New Jersey. The firm produced gift shop items. Before Cybis developed his own formula of porcelain, called "Papka," the wares were made of plaster. These were generally not well detailed, and are frequently seen on the secondary market. The Less common Cordey pieces that had true artistry and detail, such as this, are still prized. Her blouse and skirt have quite lovely designs. She is not only carrying roses, but have some in her hair. The pitcher she carries on her shoulder is well detailed, including the design around the neck, and the handle fashioned as a rope. About 1950 Boleslaw Cybis began making Cybis porcelains, which are prized around the world. Because the porcelain market prices have fallen so much you are able to get this piece at a fraction of what it was worth in the past and, in my opinion, what it will be worth in the future.
