CRACKLE GLAZE CERAMIC 
This monkey is reading a book with glasses 

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

Height : 7.7"(19.5cm), Depth : 5.8"(14.7cm), Width: 4"(10.2cm)
A tiny lack of glaze on a base corner. Tiny dark spots due to the traditional making (see photos). An excellent 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 rarissim and cannot be present in all collections.
