1950's Mid Century Modern Baldelli Italy Ceramic Bust Gambone Fantoni Era For Sale
1950's Mid Century Modern Baldelli Italy Ceramic Bust Gambone Fantoni Era
From a local estate sale, one stunning circa 1950 life size ceramic bust, done in natural tone clay with an incredible Italian turquoise glaze to the individually applied hair curls. Just gorgeous. The bust measures 11" tall, weighs 5 lbs. and sits attached to a solid wood base 3.5" square, and is signed on the back of neck Baldelli Italy. She is all hand sculpted, hollow and is really quite hauntingly beautiful. I've pictured her where she's resided for some time just to show her size next to a couple of 15 and 18 inch vases. She is undamaged save for one area of loss to the very tip/bottom of one curl on back, probably 1/4" or less, and I would think an easy touch up considering the limitless range of nail polish/paint colors available these days. I refrained from listing her this past week because I didn't want to intrude on another listing that just ended. I think she's really a tour de force of ceramic art, and one that is equal to any to the Italian potters of the 1950-60's era, whether Gambone, Fantoni, or any that worked for Raymor. Buyer to pay insured USPS shipping base on destination. Thanks for looking.
