Bisque Porcelain Bust For Sale

She has a beautiful face.

Very posed with her head down and blond hair peeking out

Her markings

She is a nice large size, 17 inches tall.
   Hello everyone out there in Blogland. I am offering for sale this wonderful bisque porcelain bust. The lady is very posed, with her head slight down and her golden hair wrapped in a white drape that continues around her neck and bust. There is what appears to be a pine cone  on her bust. She is 17 inches tall and 11 inches at the widest point. I have included a picture of her with a diet coke can so you can see her size. She is among the larger bisque pieces that was produced. There is a mark on her back, which is very rare. Most bisque figures were never marked. This mark appears to be  a C with two lines through it. She almost looks Russian, but who made her, is a good question. I can tell you, she is old and in perfect condition. Here is your chance to own a very special lady. I am asking $175.00 plus $25.00 shipping. Shipping may sound high, but she needs to be double boxed and packed well.

Hi Richard. She really is beautiful just like your house. I wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your leaving comments on my blog. I don't get many as I don't have many followers since I haven't been doing this too long. I'm one of those people who need encouragement from time to time. Finding other people who like similar things ( old houses filled with beautiful things) has been good for me. I wrote Andrew tonight and told him the same thing. Anyway, my friend in Denver visits yearly and his ancestors lived in Louisiana, Missouri which he thinks is not too far from you. He is already hinting that we should leave Alabama and drive north to visit you. I think that would be a fun trip. Marshel ( at the old plantation in Bama) (

I am always amazed at the beautiful painting of the faces.Absolute masters in their art !!
I noticed some dolls on the left side of the room.Are you a porcelain doll maker by any chance? I have dabbled in so many arts and crafts in my life that at one point I sculpted OOAK Old World Santas,but also made a few porcelain dolls.Stopped that and then went heavely into doll house miniatures,not making the dolls though only costuming them etc.
