GERMAN PORCELAIN MACRAW BIRD, Karl Ens hallmark
originally $ 695.
Porzellanfabrik Karl Ens, was a former East German company and seems to be quite rare. The Karl Ens Porcelain Factory dates from the late 19th century - 1890 to 1972 and produced a long line of porcelain figurines.
Karl Ens was not a sculptor, but a very respected 'Volkstedt' maker. In the 19th Century Karl Ens and a man called Triebner traded under the name Triebner, Ens & Co From c.1860. Over the next few decades, due, in some part to the work of Karl Ens' two sons, their products were to become highly regarded. Some of their child figurines are simply breathtakingly good sculptures.
