Vintage Clay Doll Figurine French Claude Carbonel Older Peasant Woman Knitter For Sale

Vintage Clay Doll Figurine French Claude Carbonel Older Peasant Woman Knitter

The face on this Claude Cardonel Clay Peasant Woman is remarkable and life like. This is a Genuine Santon made by Claude Carbonel, a maitre Santonnier in Marseille, France. She is holding a strand of yarn in her right handand I am not sure if she had another item, like a basket of yarn for instance,in her other hand or not. Her dress, apron & upper clothing is in great condition. As is her white bonnet she is wearing on the top of her head.She stands 11" tall and her base is 3 1/4" x 2 1/2". I believe she is Vintage and one of his oldermasterpieces as evidenced by the styly and thickness of the base upon which she stands. The newer onesdo not look like this. Good luck and please check out my page for other interesting items. Thank you!

Claude Carbonel

orn in Marseille, in Provence, between clay and colours, between his mother Clotilde Carbonel, Santon craftswoman, and his father Marcel Carbonel, Santon craftsman too, the son of his father Victor Carbonel and his mother Marie Carbonel, Santon makers from the the beginning of the 20th century, maybe even before… Santon makers from father to son.

1966.He started his own businesses after more than five years training with his father Marcel Carbonel ( with the title " Meilleur Ouvrier de France ") who certified at his departure that he fully mastered his craft. He developed this craft by creating hundreds of models and new ideas, respecting the popular traditions of Provence.
He created the of Santons painting competition, which allowed the young people of Provence at that time to play at being craftsmen themselves. He was called " Mr Crib " by the media and later manufactured millions of clay Santons to be painted which a tanker distributed throughout Europe.

ater again, dressed Santons all over the world.
Each of these actions increased his popularity.
Small Santons or dressed Santons : always free artistic creation.

Tomorrow, maybe his sons…

“All my dressed Santons are decorated by hand, each one is a unique piece. The bodies, dressed one after the other with care, in the traditional manner, are articulated in several parts by wire so that their postures can be changed. All stand on a base from clay of Provence (this makes you the proud owner of a tiny plot of "land of Provence"), except for the seated models who are on a chair and therefore do not have a base.
The colours of the cloth can change according to our collections.”
