18th Century French Figure In Ivory
A momento of the French Revolution is this ivory figure of an "incroyable," a dandy of the Terror. In all likelihood a parasol handle, the figure sports the outrageously high muffled cravat and collar of the day and the exaggerated "tricorne" hat with its ribbon and revolutionary cockade. It is in fine condition with only the end of his nose missing, and is mounted up on a Siena marble base. French, circa 1795. Approximately three inches tall (4-1/2 inches including the base) and 1-5/8 inches wide by 7/8 inch deep.
