Vintage 1930s Cordey Lady Bust Porcelain Statue Rare

Vintage 1930s Cordey Lady Bust Porcelain Statue Rare

Product Information

This lovely porcelain Cordey lady bust is most likely from the late 1930s - early 1940s.  Her lovely face, with her blue eyes, and red lips, is accented by the pretty blue flowers decorating her hair! She also has a flower in the front of her blue

patterned dress. A couple of flowers feel a bit rough to the touch, and there is one area of lace at the neckline that is missing, but I did not notice it right away, as I was captivated by her peaceful expression.  The typical Cordey scroll work

is around the base. She measures 6" tall x 3 1/4" wide across the base. It has the Cordey signature underneath, as well as the numbers 5012 and 207.  This Cordey Lady Bust is in good vintage condition!

Here is a brief history about the Cordey figurines, posted online by a collector:

CORDEY CHINA CO. OF TRENTON, NJ

THE CORDEY CHINA COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN 1942 IN FLEMINGTON,NJ BY POLISH IMMIGRANT BOLESLAW CYBIS. AND SHORTLY THERE-AFTER MOVED TO ITS PRESENT HOME IN TRENTON,NJ. HIS OPERATION

WAS SMALL, SOMETIMES CONSISTING OF LESS THAN A DOZEN SKILLED ARTISTS WHO PRODUCED MANY  ELEGANT WORKS OF ART. THEY MADE VASES, LAMPS, FIGURINES, LIFE-LIKE ANIMALS AND SIMILAR WARES

THAT WERE SOLD BOTH NATIONWIDE AS WELL AS ABROAD. MOST OF THE EARLIER WORKS WERE MADE OF PLASTER BUT CYBIS WOULD SOON DEVELOP HIS OWN FORMULA FOR A PORCELAIN COMPOSITION

CALLED "PAPKA".

CORDEY'S WORKS WERE OFTEN CHARACTERIZED BY THIER OLD-WORLD CHARM, WITH DELICATE FLORAL APPLICATIONS, RUFFLES AND ROCCO SCROLLS. SOMETIMES REAL LACE WAS EVEN DIPPED IN LIQUIFIED

CLAY TO ADD A 3-DIMENSIONAL EFFECT. ON RARE OCCASIONS SOME ITEMS WERE NOT SIGNED OR NUMBERED. BASIC WARES WERE CAST WITH BOTH NUMBERS AND THE "CORDEY" SIGNATURE. THE MOLDED

PIECES WERE INDIVIDUALLY DECORATED AND EACH MARKED WITH THIER OWN IMPRESSED IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS AS WELL AS A MARK TO IDENTIFY THE ARTIST-DECORATOR.

THE NUMBERING SYSTEM BEGAN WITH 200 AND PROGRESSED INTO THE 8000'S. PRODUCTION CONTINUED INTO THE THE MID 1950s. BOLESLAW CYBIS DIED IN 1957, FOLLOWED BY HIS WIFE IN '58.

 HIS WARES CAN STILL BE FOUND TODAY, MOST PREVALENT SEEM TO BE HIS PORCELAIN ANIMAL FIGURES AND BUSTS OF VICTORIAN LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. I HAVE FOUND HIS VASES RATHER RARE AND WHEN

FOUND USUALLY MISSING A PETAL OR LEAF FROM THEIR INTRICATE 3-DIMENSIONAL FLOWERS.

IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO FIND A CORDEY AT AN AFFORDABLE  PRICE, YOU'VE FOUND A REAL TREASURE! THE BUILDING WHERE BOLESLAW CYBIS MADE HIS BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART IS STILL OPEN FOR

TOURS IN TRENTON NJ. IF YOU'RE IN THE AREA, STOP BY!
