VINTAGE PORCELAIN PIERROT CHILD FIGURINE

This listing features a figurine of Pierrot* as a child, strumming his mandolin and singing an unrequited love song for Columbine, the beautiful ballerina. This lovesick fool, or clown, originated in early Italian opera (commedia dell’arte) during the Renaissance and was quickly spread by troupes of actors traveling throughout Europe. The Pierrot character in particular resurfaced in Paris cafes as a mime during the 1920s.

Art Deco-era artists and porcelain manufacturers widened his popularity by portraying him as an adorable child mime. The 1980s kept that trend going but included female, and androgynous versions, which are enjoying a comeback today. Commedia dell’arte characters continue to inspire entertainment today, especially Pierrot’s dilemma. We all long for someone who loves another at some point during our lives.

This little porcelain measures 5 inches tall by 3 inches wide by 3 3/4 inches deep and has a gold foil “MADE IN SPAIN” sticker still attached underneath. The construction of this figurine is complex and beautifully done, with bisque and glazed porcelain. His condition is outstanding, as are the hand-painted and gilt details. He comes from my grandmother’s comedia dell’arte collection, gathered during her 1920s European travels. Pierrot was her favorite character and she collected them. It is my pleasure to share pieces from this collection.
