Bisque pottery and sculpture is a form of earthenware that is fired, yet not finished with a glaze. The first real production of very high quality French bisque or “biscuit” was produced by Sevres in the middle 1700s. Toward the end of the 19th century, France experience a renewed interest in the decorative arts of the 18th century, which led to the manufacture of some creative and beautiful pieces. The piece seen here dates to the late 1800s or early 1900s.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with several glued areas, general wear, and surface buildup. However, no losses of any significance can be found.
