Guest Book

This bisque porcelain bust was produced in France by Levy & Cie in 1875. It is 22 1/2 inches high, 12 inches across the shoulders, and it weighs about 13 1/2 pounds. There is an incised signature "G. Levy" on the back of the bust. This bust is superbly modeled from the "Belle Epoche" period. She looks like one of those beautiful high fashioned ladies portrayed in many of the French Impressionist paintings. There are about three minor firing cracks which occurred during the manufacturing process. No other defects exist.
