Hollohaza Hungarian Porcelain 1777 Nude

Another of my prized collectibles is a Hollohaza Hungarian porcelain figurine of a female nude. I previously wrote about my Hollohaza Hungarian Porcelain 1831 Seamstress. In my collection of Hollohaza, this is the largest piece. It was a gift from my now ex-husband. He saw what a large collection I had of Hungarian Hollohaza porcelain. He selected this majestic figurine as a birthday gift. I was pleasantly surprised.

In my opinion, he did a fine job of selecting such a beautiful collectible piece.

This incredible porcelain figurine is made in Hungary. It measures approximately 12 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches wide at the right knee. The base measures 4 inches by 3-1/2 inches. The nude is in delicate white porcelain kneeling upon a pale yellow throw. She is captured in looking like she might be preparing for a bath or a dip in the pool. Her hair is a light brown and pulled back. She has painted eyebrows and lips.

The porcelain marks are stamped in dark navy blue on the bottom side of the base of the porcelain figurine. I think the bird is like a regal firebird. The number 35 is written in black. On the other Hollohaza figurine, the words "kézzel festett" appear instead of "Handpainted."

Hollohaza collectibles date back many years. The 1777 signifies the year the glass works manufacturing was established. The Hollohaza Porcelain Manufactory Co., Ltd. is located in the same location. Learn a little more about the history of Hollohaza.
