Bisque Busts

We’ve always been attracted to the fine and subtle detail of bisque porcelain. Glazing tends to smooth over details and make things blander. This originals of our busts were purchased at a provincial French auction. Our replicas are exact down to the finest detail and cost only a fraction of what we paid at auction!

Busts like these were en vogue in the first half of the 19th century, and often taken home by Grand Tour travelers who were always on the lookout for authentic historical artifacts. We were not able to find a Queen at this time, but Madame de Pompadour is a serious stand-in! Not exactly life size, but precious, charming and whiter-than-white…AR033 Madame de Pompadour
