    Stalin bust, in glazed and bisque porcelain, circa 1940s- 1950s, by the famous Herend Porcelain Manufacturer in Hungary.

    Stalin bust, in glazed and bisque porcelain, circa 1940s- 1950s, by the famous Herend Porcelain Manufacturer in Hungary.

    About 6 3/4" tall. The plinth is 2 1/2" by 2". Bottom shows stamped maker mark "Herend" and the company's catalog number for this item, which is engraved. There are also a few pencil notes, possibly left by the original retailer. Like our bust of Lenin with a stern or angry look by the same manufacturer, this piece is certainly a testimony to the traditional quality of the Herend porcelain and is "head and shoulders" above the usual quality of mass produced busts and statuettes in metal and china that one usually encounters. The facial features are extremely detailed. Note also the unusual technique which combines the use of more dignified bisque porcelain (the head) and glazed porcelain (upper torso and plinth).

    Excellent overall condition. The bisque portions have accumulated a minor amount of dust from handling over the decades, a frequent occurrence with bisque finishes, and might respond to a careful washing with a mild detergent. There is a single tiny dot in the glaze near the edge of one of the shoulder boards, not detractive.

    Obviously designed as a companion piece to the Herend bust of Lenin. Classic image of the Generalissimo wearing his WW II uniform, ideal for desktop, mantle or bookcase display.

    Please note, medal in our photo is for size reference.
