What a wonderful depiction of the infamous "Pierrot" in Porcelain, designed by "Constantin Holzer-DeFanti" in 1919 for Rosenthal. Rosenthal was renowned for the exquisite porcelain figurines modeled by some of the best Artists at that time.
This Large and Rare Pierrot figure (Model #549) is approx. 12" long in his "lying down repose"....he is so exhausted after a long night of parties and dancing! But Ready for more.....if called upon!
The modeling and painting of this figure is extremely well detailed and exact...his handsome visage is so expressive!! those dreamy eyes and cherry red lips!! He is in Excellent Condition, with just a very very petite flea bite on his leg that was probably just a flaw in the making, but hardly visible.
Pierrot was a stock character of pantomime and Commedia dell'Arte, whose origins are in the late seventeenth-century Italian troupe of players performing in Paris and known as the Comédie-Italienne.
Pierrot is willing to travel to your home, and promises to lie very still and be handsome for all visitors to admire....
