A fine pair of Limoges porcelain and Parian busts of two young children, very well detailed and standing on cobalt blue ceramic bases with a gilded ring decoration. This lovely and sweet brother sister team are Stamped Fharaud on the underside.
Parian ware is a type of biscuit porcelain imitating marble. It was developed circa 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.
