Rosenthals stunning use of unglazed and glazed areas. These beautiful busts from Rosenthal are inspired by the original Nefertiti bust that is present at Neues Museum in Berlin.

Rosenthal Selb Plossberg  29,5cm in perfect condition this is for a near pair the one is slightly higher than the other and they have two different markings from the Rosenthal Factory . We wanted to keep them as a pair as they are truly amazing together for either side of a mantle piece or in-between a book collection.

The original Nefertiti bust is a painted stucco-coated limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 B.C. by the sculptor Thutmose, because it was found in his workshop in Amarna, Egypt. A German archaeological team led by Ludwig Borchardt discovered the bust in 1912 in Thutmose’s workshop. It has been kept at various locations in Germany since its discovery, including the cellar of a bank, a salt mine in Merkers-Kieselbach, the Dahlem museum, the Egyptian Museum in Charlottenburg and the Altes Museum.
