whether you love molière, want to look like you love molière or just appreciate a nice mustache, this bust of the famous french playwright is the finishing touch your grand library needs.
This isn’t just some trendy take on antique sculpture, this is the real deal. First created in biscuit porcelain (aka white unglazed porcelain) in 1899 at the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, this bust is actually classified historic. The Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres was founded by Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson (better known as the Marquise de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV of France) in 1740 in Vincennes, moving to the town of Sèvres in 1756. Widely known as a patron of the arts and literature, this unusually powerful, practical, and accomplished eighteenth century woman also planned the building of the Petit Trianon at Versailles, as well as the nation’s respected Ecole Militaire.
Since then, the porcelain foundry has produced a number of magnificent works, but not all of them are available for purchase online. Get your 18″ Molière for $12,500 and show the world you know a legacy of human accomplishment when you see one.
