For sale here is a fine pair of rare 1950s 60s handmade painted ceramic Clown Minstrel figures statues sculptures by the workshop of Perconte Artistic Ceramics in Sciacca Italy. Perconte is a multi-generational family business that has been in Sciacca since the early 1930s, and these figures are from their hey-day in the mid-century post war period. Truly wonderful whimsical figures that are in amazing condition! One is slightly taller than the other at 13" tall, the shorter is 12-1/2" tall. They both measure 5-1/2" widest by 3-1/2" deep, and the pair weigh just over 2000 grams total. One of them retains the original period sticker at the front at its feet as shown in the photos, and both have hand-painted marks under the glaze at back "Perconte Sciacca". Due to the fragility of these figures, it will be more expensive than normal to ship them, and they will require double-boxing to insure that they arrive safely and in one piece. Excellent vintage condition with just a couple very small fleabites on one figure as shown but really noting really noticeable or that detracts - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
