Object Description

This exquisite pair of orientalist busts are modeled in terracotta and depict two North African figures with painted draped clothing. They are the work of the Goldscheider Manufactory and Majolica Factory, perhaps the most important maker of ceramics in Europe in the late 19th Century. The models were originally created by the Austrian sculptor Arthur Strasser, who worked under Friedrich Goldscheider. A maker’s mark for Friedrich Goldscheider, Vienna, can be found on the back of the busts.
