Capodimonte Giuseppe Cappé Cappe Italian Porcelain Hobo Man Dog Italy Figurine For Sale
~Giuseppe Cappe Figurine~
This isa superb porcelain bisque Cappe figurine of a kind hobo dressed in tattered clothes, reaching down to pet a forlorn looking dog. This figure has exceptional detail... including the mans beautiful face, tired and worn but with bright blue eyes shining through... the veins in his life-like hands, very detailed feet even down to the toenails... silvered accents on his bags buckles, the one button on his coat, and the tip of the umbrella... the dog is modeled so well that he actually looks cold and wet, and the base has a rich, thickly gilded rim... it is altogether a fabulous piece of work!
This figure is in very good condition other than a minor repair at the end portion of the bag held in his hand, and the silver bucket handle has touchup right where the handle meets the side of the bucket; both minor to the display, see photos. A large piece, this figure measures10 1/4" tall. Marked with an impressed GCappe signature, and makers marks under base as shown, circa 1962. Superb figure, excellent display!
