Presented for sale is an exceptional 1900 era Bohemian Teplitz bust, hand painted in rich glazed caramels and lush greens and pinks.  The bust depicts a beautiful young woman (possibly modeled after the actress Sarah Bernhardt) dressed in a frilly bustier with capped sleeves.  Her upswept corkscrew curls are embellished with a chapeau draped by a trailing ribbon.  A small putti rests at the base of her bust and is blowing a kiss-- which is an unusual addition for a Teplitz bust, but quite charming.

The bust is in very good condition with restorations to the pierced crest atop her hat, and a few extremely minor chips.

Size:  18 ½” Height by 15” Width.
