ANTIQUE ITALIAN GINORI PORCELAIN DWARFS FIGURES

ANTIQUE ITALIAN GINORI PORCELAIN DWARFS FIGURES

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An Italian Ginori Porcelain pair of Dwarfs or two old persons represented as grotesque figures. These small figures inspired from a series of drawings by Jacques Callot’s entitled, “Grosteque Dwarves” dating back to 1616.

Both figures are in excellent condition, come from a private Milanese collection and date back to the second quarter of 19th century.

With a cobalt blue Doccia Ginori mark on the underside, a G under the Crown of Naples, stand on circular bases and date back to late 19th century.

According to historical facts, the figures were actually real-life dwarves who were hired to stand outside of the Royal courts, wearing advertisements.
