Art Deco Turkish Cigarette Advertising Statue Bust in Terracotta


Art Deco bust in painted terracotta, advertising Turkish cigarettes. Finely detailed and in polychrome colours, with traditional Fez (hat) with black tassel falling to the rear, all on a black, turned socle at base. The face is amazingly life-like, as too, the eyes and the clothing folds. The lips are recessed to take a sample of a small cigarette, or “Cigarillo”, the ultimate realism display. At the rear undercut, are Marks, “o” over “M”, both within a large “C”; also has “Depose” (made in France), and “No. 168”. Condition is excellent for age, but there are many tiny marks, with only the occasional larger one, with marks, and scrapes from handling/storage of the 95 odd years since it was made. However, from the images we supply, these are really negligible. Overall dimensions are approx: 47cm high x 25cm across shoulders; base 13cm wide x 12.5cm deep x 2.5cm thick, France, circa 1920.
