Presented for sale is a late 19th / early 20th century Delftware Faience bust of a gentleman with beard and hat. The bust, hat, and socle are hand painted in multi colored glazes while the face is finely detailed in Delft blue. The features are very life like and well painted.
The bust is in excellent condition with a few minor glaze losses mainly to the socle. The bust is marked with what appears to be a stylized "AR" in rust over glaze. We have not been able to concretely identify the mark.
