Another exquisite Antonio Borsato Porcelain Figurine with this being "Boulevardier" #138 or "The Pensioner" #906.
Again, the detail on this Borsato is almost beyond belief: Nicely dressed gentlemen sitting on a bench with his legs crossed and holding his pipe. Umbrella hanging on the bench with a newspaper lying on the seat next to him and a small bag of grapes. Two birds with one on the bench and one near his feet. At the rear of the bench is a tree trunk with a small branch coming straight up and a smaller bird sitting on this branch.
It just doesn't get much better than this Borsato figurine. I consider Borsato to be one of the the best, if not the best, sculptor in Europe from the mid 1960's till his death in 1982.
