THIS EXQUISITE BISQUE FIGURINE

DATES FROM ABOUT 1910-1925.

it originally belonged to King Farouk

of Egypt.  After Farouk went into exile,

it was catalogued and sold by Southeby's

in 1952., (more than 60 yrs. ago).  

Magazines and Newspapers named

reported the sale as 'THE SALE OF THE

CENTURY'.     (Farouk had a fabulous

...vast collection).   The manufacturer

mark's are blurred on the base, and

a small paper tag with appraisal value

and identification of the figurine has

been lost.  WE CONTACTED AN

APPRAISAL GROUP HOPING THEY

COULD IDENTIFY THE MAKER.   BUT

THEY COULD NOT.   The VERY EXCELLENT

QUALITY OF THIS FIGURINE TELLS US THAT

IT WAS MADE BY ONE OF THE WORLD'S

BEST!   .....
