Welcome To The Antique Cabinet
For your consideration is a very rare ROYAL DOULTON Sung Flambe Seated BUDDHA or IMMORTAL Statue, circa 1920’s.
This is really an outstanding and scarce piece of early Royal Doulton. It is documented on page 233 in the Schiffer book "Royal Doulton, A Legacy of Excellence 1871-1945".
Made in England and designed by Charles J. Noke, this piece was produced for Artandia Ltd who was a supplier for ocean liners. Made to serve as a speaker cover and act as a natural amplifier, these were used in luxury cabins and were produced in a very limited number. This particular example has a Sung Flambe glaze, which is the rarest version of all with a beautiful mix of random deep colors, no two were ever alike. It is properly marked on the bottom "Doulton & Co. Ltd for Artandia Ltd".
This is a relatively large piece measuring approx. 12¾"tall by 10" at widest.
It is in Excellent condition, free of any chips, cracks or repairs and very lite age/handling related wear - has a couple minuscule scratches with a few tiny scuffs on backside head area; shows little to no crazing.
An extraordinary piece!
