This remarkable, colorful porcelain sculpture was hand crafted in Italy. Modeled in extensive detail our characatured Clown is whimsically “caning” his Double Bass. With elongated fingers, limbs and shoes, the style is reminiscent of Italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti. The extreme high fire material has an almost metallic ring when tapped and a highly vitrified finish. The body is hollowed as is the bass viol, adding to the resonance; note that it is free-standing (not on a molded base). It is approximately 11 inches tall. Condition is mint. The only signature we find is on the bottom of the left foot: “Italy” by hand.
