Item/Description: Vintage Royal Crown Jonathan Byron “romantic Colonial courting couple seated on a loveseat sofa/couch” bisque figurine.
***Seated couple is posed in an incredibly lifelike and oh-so-enamored-with-each-other animated position
***Colors utilized on this lovely figural statue are a visually stunningly and vividly colorful array of mauve pink, lemon yellow, violet, cornflower blue, rust orange, golden brown, silvery gray, black, peach, flesh, snowy white and gold
***As if the exquisite artisanship of Jonathan Byron, along with the scrumptious coloration of this charming piece were not enough to delight the eyes as well as the romantic soul, the lovely lady’s dress is still further enhanced with additional exquisite details such as 3-dimensional flowers on her lap and meshed fabric trim along the hem of her dress
Age/Period: Vintage - ca 1980s
Manufacturer/Identification/Markings/Country of Origin: Underside of figurine is backstamped with a black “Royal Crown” mark AND IS ALSO incised “J. Byron” (the initials for artist Jonathan Byron, who also crafted works for Arnart)
Material(s)/Format: Unglazed ceramic bisque
Size/Measurements: Approximately 5 ½”H (measuring to the top of the gentleman’s head) x 7 1/4"W
Quantity: One (1)
Condition: Exceptional and virtually mint, remaining vividly colorful and exhibiting no nicks, chips, cracks, breaks, repairs or paint loss. Though not technically a condition issue, being noted for purposes of accuracy is that the glue beneath the charming lady’s mesh trim has darkened with age and become slightly visible, which is the only reason we have not graded this sculpture as “mint”.
