Item # 172. A Hungarian Figure of a male. c. 1910-15. Cubist in form. Mark for the Obuda Factory of Budapest Hungary. Incised initials of the artist: "M.Gy." This size of this figure is 9.75" tall. The Glaze: Obuda glazes had some relationship to glazes from the Zsolnay Factory, but they were more reserved. This brown dull metallic glaze has an undertone of green, blue and purple gradiations. Condition: two chips, one on the leg and the other on the base; flea bites to the top of the plateau that the figure is standing on. Most Cubist decorative arts from Central Europe seem to come from Czechslokavia, this exceptional item reflects an international style that was also experiemented with in Hungary. For every 1000 pieces of Zsolnay that comes to the market, you find only one from the Obuda Factory. Price: $1,500.00.
