Cordey Sir Walter Raleigh Bust Figurine #5034
This dashing young male head/bust figurine is a wonderful example of porcelain art from the Cordey China Co., the earlier studio of Boleslaw Cybis, founded in the early 1940s. Research indicates that this bust form (#5034) is a Cordey 'Raleigh,' which I believe to be explorer and poet Sir Walter Raleigh.
This young gentleman bust sits atop a short creamy white pedestal decorated by a gilt trim, with a lone pink flower at his waist. Measures 7 inches high. In very good condition, with two small nicks to the front hat feather and a glaze flake at the back underside of the hat rim. Marked Cordey, 5034.
