This Exceedingly Rare 1950s Percheron Stallion by esteemed porcelain artist Edward Marshall Boehm has been in my family since date of issue. Only 50 of these were made, (see Reece Palley's book). Edward Marshall Boehm's signature is in script on the bottom of the stallions hoof.
This Dappled Percheron Stallion projects strength and grace. He has pink and blue ribbons with pink roses woven thru his Mane. His tail is bobbed and tied up with a pink and blue bow. This is a rare and important piece from the hands of the master himself.
Featured in the reference book "The Porcelain Art of Edward Marshall Boehm" by Reece Palley. Boehm was known for his Horse Sculptures as well as other Animals and Birds. The Met Museum was gifted a copy of this Percheron Stallion which is now part of their collection.
He is in excellent condition, no chips or cracks. 12" x 9" x 4 1/4.Edward Marshall Boehm (August 21, 1913 January 29, 1969) was an American figurative expressionist sculptor, known for his porcelain figures of birds and other wildlife. Boehm explained his choice of porcelain as the medium for his art as follows. Porcelain is a permanent creation. If properly processed and fired, its colors will never change; and it can be subjected to extreme temperatures without damage. It is a medium in which one can portray the everlasting beauty of form and color of wildlife and nature.
NOTE: I received a question from an Ebayer asking if the porcelain is marred by stains or discoloration. I did not clean the piece before photographing. I have since cleaned the piece and any spots or discoloration in the photos have been washed away.The item "Exceedingly Rare 1950s Edward Marshall Boehm Percheron Stallion, Signed, Mint" is in sale since Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
