Presented for sale is a Turn-Teplitz porcelain bust made by the firm of Riessner, Stellmacher, & Kessel in Trnovany, Czech Republic (Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia, Austria) between 1892-1905. The bust portrays a beautiful young woman with upswept hair wearing a version of a mop cap. The ribbon is tied around her forehead and there are daisies lining the top of the cap. She is dressed in a V-neck gathered blouse with large frilly sleeves. The subtle hand-painted tones of lime greens and pinks are typical of the extraordinary finishes seen on these earlier Teplitz busts. Each bust was hand finished and no two pieces are exactly the same.

The bust is stamp signed on the base and impressed/signed on the back of her dress.

These female busts are among some of our favorites, incredibly painted and sculpted; we consider them to be unparalleled pieces of art. The firm of Riessner, Stellmacher, & Kessel only existed for a short period during a magical window when these three talented artists worked together.

The bust is in excellent condition with minor professional repairs to a few small chips to the edge of her attire.

Size: 17 ¼" Height by 15" Width (shoulder to shoulder).
