Large Antique Porcelain Cockatoo Sculpture Royal Worcester Made circa 1870

About

A large antique porcelain sculpture of a cockatoo made by Royal Worcester Porcelain in the last quarter of the 19th century. The sculpture is the size of a live cockatoo. Modeled as if it is about to take flight, the bird looks straight at the viewer seemingly about to speak before flying away. Cockatoos are found mostly in Australia. They are smart and can mimic human speech perfectly. Its wingspan is 17 inches ( an adult cockatoo wingspan ranges from 13 to 18 inches). Cockatoos are found mostly in Australia. This fellow will make a wonderful pet requiring little care, only an occasional dusting! Dimensions: Height 18 inches x width 17 inches x depth 13.5 inches Condition: Excellent price: $1800 Background of Royal Worcester: Royal Worcester is synonymous with the production of high end porcelain pieces. This piece has the mark of Royal Worcester, and of the retailer Mortlock of London. It may have been commissioned especially by that London shop. During the Aesthetic period of the late 19th century there was an intense interest in nature. Because of this the Worcester factory produced magnificent large-scale porcelain birds such as this cockatoo. Royal Worcester is known for its classically English collections of porcelain. Its history dates back to the mid 1700's.
