Height: cm (in)

Late 19th century bisque porcelain standing figure of a hussar modelled in dolman jacket, Hungarian style conical csákó, and pelisse slung from the left shoulder. Produced in the Sèvres style of the mid eighteenth. Marked Lagneau, after the  Sèvres modeller, and marked with the Sèvres factory interlaced L's.

Bisque, French for 'biscuit', is a technique where the porcelain is left unglazed. In its pristine white state, the moulded porcelain resembles pure marble. This style of porcelain was invented by the Sèvres factory, who used it to create small sculptures to replace the white sugar figurines that were used to decorate dining room tables in eighteenth century France.
