This Auction features an item we've purchased from our recent Mid-West Road Trip. While we typically go to great lengths to give you all the details on a piece which we are offering for auction the next couple of listings will have the "must know" information in them as we try to catch up from our 5 day road trip/shopping trip. Please, feel free to ask any questions we might have overlooked, we'll post ALL INCOMING questions to the listing. This is such a great piece that despite the fact that it is unmarked we still felt an obligation to offer it to our customers as it is positively beautiful and will gain in value as the years go by.
We prefer to be known for purchasing items that are spectacular and display of talent of the artist who created them, rather than the "Brand Name" stamped on the bottom of the piece as "Brand Names" have been forged throughout the centuries. This is one of those pieces. How unbelievably sad that whoever created this piece will never get credit for it. With the style, attention to detail, and flawless beauty know for by Royal Doulton this piece could pass for musem quality. Our logic behind all of our purchases ... if we want it for ourselves wouldn't our client's want it for themselves as well?
Made of the highest quality porcelain her wardrobe and fan are in gloss format was her hand, face and hair are in bisque. A large amount of time was involved in the creation of this piece!
She is 8.5" tall and 4.25" wide from her fan to her left arm. Resting at her feet are the soft folds of her Kimona and in her ears are Jade-like earrings. This is a piece to cherish and pass on, she displays a style reminiscent of some of the great porcelain makers of history.
This trip we purchased primarily famous named pieces such as Royal Copenhagen, Royal Doulton, Royal Dux, Ceramic Art Studios, and Pickard. No doubt we have left out some of the manufacturers but they will be listing shortly.While we have a large number of famous designer figurines we also purchased a few wonderful pieces from un-named companys (above two pieces are an example of) which we feel will have a large target audience just for their beauty alone. We also found the most amazing complete set of white with 22k gold trimmed Johnson-Brothers Staffordshire dishes in great condition. As well as solid gold designed Pickard Plates....yes, you know we're talking about you! We guarantee that we have fulfilled our clients Rooster, Pheasant, Dog and Art Deco pieces! We will be listing as fast as possible.
