We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE MINIATURE PORCELAIN FIGURAL FRENCH GENTLEMAN PEDESTAL BUST!
This SUPERB example of a coveted collectible came from a QUALITY COLLECTION of other wonderful antique French Fashion doll accessories which we have pictured here and will be offered for sale under separate listings, and this haughty gent is sure to ENCHANT with his hard to find TINY SIZE-------------an absolute FABULOUS ACCESSORY for display on your Poupee's mantel or to showcase in a MUSIC ROOM or parlor vignette!
Although marked with incised and hand painted numbers, but most likely of German origin made for the FRENCH MARKET, this uniquely fashioned miniature bust is circa late 1800's, and with its FANCY FRENCH appeal is sure to attract both doll and porcelain collectors alike!
Measuring a DIMINUTIVE 5 3/8" tall, 2 3/4" wide across the shoulders and 1 5/8" across the base, the bust is BEAUTIFULLY MODELED with fine detail, completely hand painted with rich GILDED EMBELLISHMENTS on the jacket and contrasting pastel shades on his Admiral style hat and stylish cravat! His lustrous blonde curls are individually molded and his head is positioned with the head turned slightly toward the side in a CLASSICAL POSE------it is obviously of a very HIGH QUALITY porcelain! It is in PERFECT CONDITION with no apparent chips, cracks or restorations-----just LOVELY!
For scale purposes we are showing it displayed next to our antique 13" French Fashion doll on a pedestal table, which is not included in this offering but used to demonstrate how STUNNING these wonderful figurines look as companions to antique dolls, especially in this TINY SIZE----- the PERFECT COMPLIMENT to any bisque or porcelain collection or in your POUPEE'S SALON!
