We are offering a fine and rare selection of Hussar figures designed and made at the Zsolnay Factory for the Paris World's Fair in 1900. These figures were made for the Hussar Exhibition Hall. Lajos Mack (1876-1963) and Sandor Apati Abt (1870-1916) were commissioned to create the figures. We have six for sale: 5 in white glaze and one in a polychromed glaze. There were 31 in all including a large figure of Franz Josef on a horse. This entire collection can be viewed in Budapest at the Military Museum in Buda.
