Monumental bisque figural bust with lots of artistic charm and a realistic portrait-like face. The inscription of M. Poli is on the right outside of his shoulder. I believe this would be the artist's signature. He has an open closed mouth with a smile showing full bottom teeth, shaded lips, blushed cheeks, intaglio eyes, full feathered brows and magnificent dimples. I love his brown unkempt curly hair and his very detailed ear modeling. The blue bandanna around his neck and partially unbuttoned blouse will give you the impression he is from French descent. The masculine lines of his face with an almost perfectly pointed chin are significant to his masculinity and possible flirty ambitions. He is perfect in every way and will be a remarkable addition to a collection of impressive figurines. The size is overwhelming and the artistry is superb. This very large figurine will be shipped Fed Ex, insured and with request for signature at a fixed price.
