Vintage 1950's Papier Mache Head by Gemma Taccogna (1923-2007) is signed on the bottom: Gemma Taccogna Mexico. It measures ten inches high by four inches wide and deep; is sculpted in papier mache coated in porcelain, then hand painted and glazed. It is a highly collectible work of art in near mint condition, with only one very slight chip on the bottom edge of the back of the hat not noticeable unless you look for it.

Born in Italy in 1923, internationally recognized artist Gemma Taccogna invented porcelain finish papier-mache after having gained wide recognition as a portrait artist in traditional oil on canvas and watercolors. In 1954 she moved to mexico with her husband. where she started a papier mache studio and went on to create amazing work that is now collected worldwide.
