History: Parian ware is a type of bisque porcelain imitating marble. It was developed around 1845 by the Staffordshire pottery manufacturer Mintons, and named after Paros, the Greek island renowned for its fine-textured, white Parian marble, used since antiquity for sculpture. Parian has a more vitrified finish than porcelain due to a higher proportion of feldspar. Parian ware was utilised mainly for busts and figurines, and occasionally for dishes and small vases, such as might be carved from marble. Several English factories claimed credit for its development. In 1845, as part of a concerted effort to raise public taste and improve manufactures, the Art Union of London commissioned Copeland to make a series of figures after works by leading contemporary sculptors... . There were numerous British Parian manufacturers in the nineteenth century. Parian is still being made by Belleek Pottery(wikipedia.org) SIZE: 10"h x 6 1/4" across at shoulders 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" in base 1.14lbs The Apollo Bust is in excellent condition, no chips, cracks, or damages. ****Notice, please, that each computer monitor is different and the real colors may slightly vary*** ♥ Please feel free to contact me and ask any question(s) about this item!♥
