Antique Parian Porcelain Nude, Joseph Pollet
A lovely Antique (circa late 1800s) Parian Porcelain Sculpture Figurine of a Nude Lady. The Nude is called Hour In the Night (Une Heur De

I found similar examples in the book "The Parian Phenomenon" but not this exact example, she is no doubt English in origin and by one of the top quality makers of the Victorian era. The Nude figurine stands 12 5/8" high. She is in good condition for the age, the only thing to note are small losses to the flowers, see closeup photo. There are in-the-making dark specks in the porcelain mainly on her back, this is common to Parian Porcelain of this age. The lovely lady would be perfect in a Parian Porcelain collection, she is one of the harder to find figurines.
