  RARE  ANTIQUE  BLUE MIRROR
PLATEAU  AND  BATHING BEAUTY
FIGURINE WERE THE
PERSONAL POSSESSIONS
OF HIS ROYAL MAJESTY KING FAROUK
OF EGYPT.

The military coup which forced the King to
abdicate and go into exile in 1952, 
confiscated the King's
vast antique treasures which were
in the Egyptian palace, 
and soon after,  needing to fund
the new government
treasury,  commissioned Sotheby's to sell
the wonderful collection,  in what
reporters of that time described as
" THE SALE OF THE CENTURY "

An American business man in Egypt, purchased
many of the grand antiques, brought them
to NYC, warehoused them for more than
2 decades.   After his death, his heir placed
the collections for resale.

We spent the 1st 3 days of that sale,  selecting
and purchasing treasures for
an antique business
we were opening. 
NOW,  MANY YEARS LATER
HEIRS  OF 3  OF  OUR BUYERS DECADES
AGO,  have consigned a few of their heirlooms to
us for resale.

The maker's marks are
 on this Fine  Bisque figurine   
A small paper which further identified
the maker, had been attached to the
base of the Bathing Beauty, but most of the
small paper has been torn away,
and lost.  Now, 
so many decades later i cannot remember
which porcelain manufacturer made this
BATHING BEAUTY.

The silversmith's Hallmark is on the base of
the plateau.  I cannot recall the name, so must
research the maker's marks.  

Measurements:
Figurine:  17  1/2"   Tall     10"  Front to Back
6"   Wide
Condition:   Mint

Plateau:   15  1/2 "    Diameter
( It rises about  1  1/2"  from table top surface).
Condition:  Superb Antique Condition

There is an area about 1  1/2"  sq.
which has a soft crazing on the
underside of the mirror
that is typical of antique mirrors.
 
The innermost bezel ring  and 
the convoluted, or double curved pierced
ring of the plateau ARE STERLING SILVER.
The outermost ring and the other ring with the
matching gaddroon pattern are heavy silverplate.

Bottom of the plateau has original antique
black leatherette in excellent condition.
Please do email any questions.
