France, ca.1930 

CRACKLED GLAZE CERAMIC 

The crackle glaze ceramic figurines by Octave Larrieu are rarissim. It is the first one that we have in hands (with the monkey that we are also listing). A real MUSEAL piece for your collection ! 

Height : 7.7"(19.5cm), Depth : 5.5"(14cm), Width: 3.9"(9.8cm), 
Two lacks of glaze on base corners, the matter is present, just the glaze is gone (maybe two bubbles made in the making and gone later). Tiny dark spots due to the traditional making (see photos). A nice condition for its age ! 
Signed "O.Larrieu" on the base (see photo) 

A "MUST HAVE" in any collection ? Not sure, a must have is supposed to be available to be acquired. This piece is etremely rare and cannot be present in every collection.
