Vintage Wien/Vienna/Austria-Augarten, Porcelain, White Cat Figurine Licking Neck
This is the exquisitely designed Wien, Vienna, Austria-Augarten, Porcelain, Sleek, White Cat Figurine. The artist has given particular detail to the face, feet, ears and muscle. Despite it's susceptibility to collapse during formation and warp during firing, porcelain is the Diva of clay bodies because of it's bright, white color translucency and ability to beautifully display glazes. Porcelain is made of Kaolin, the purest form of clay. Because Kaolin is too hard to work with, porcelain is not made exclusively from it; however, the more Kaolin in the clay body, the whiter it will fire in the kiln. As can be seen from this amazing figurine, there was plenty of Kaolin used and more time expended to achieve this simple yet extremely complicated creation. The figurine has been on display behind glass in a curio. Thanks for stopping by, and please take a look at our other listings. We have more dolls, toys, collectibles and figurines.
