Austrian Terracotta Cigar Holder with Collectible Black Figures, Signed BB


Terracotta is a wonderful material used to make some of the finest sculpture. As much as we love selling bronze sculpture we find that work can done even finer using terracotta. When you add the meticulous paint to the figures it makes the finished product even more appealing. This particular example has a section behind the couple which was used for cigars. The statue is signed "BB", for Bernard Bloch who did much work in this medium. This is certainly one of the more colorful, detailed and charming pieces of terracotta that we have offered in sometime.
