French Regency, C. 1810-1840.Metal mounts and metal inlays were the prevailing fashion for decorating the surface of furniture. The dominance of metal for decorative purposes was established by the French designers who realized the necessity for decorating the flat uninterrupted surfaces of polishedmahogany. Favorite motifs were used as terminal figures, sphinxes, the winged sun disc. Especially characteristic were the metalpawfeet.

A nymph in Greek mythology is a female spirit typically associated with a particular location or landform. Other nymphs, always in the shape of young nubile maidens, were part of the retinue of a god, such as Dionysus, Hermes, or Pan, or a goddess, generally Artemis. Nymphs were the frequent target of satyrs. They live in mountains and groves, by springs and rivers, also in trees and in valleys and cool grottoes. They are frequently associated with the superior divinities: the huntress Artemis; the prophetic Apollo; the reveller and god of wine, Dionysus; and rustic gods such as Pan and Hermes.
The symbolic marriage of a nymph and a patriarch, often the eponym of a people, is repeated endlessly in Greek origin myths; their union lent authority to the archaic king and his line.

THE CORDEY CHINA COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN 1942 IN FLEMINGTON,NJ BY POLISH IMMIGRANT BOLESLAW CYBIS. AND SHORTLY THERE-AFTER MOVED TO ITS PRESENT HOME IN TRENTON,NJ. HIS OPERATION WAS SMALL, SOMETIMES CONSISTING OF LESS THAN A DOZEN SKILLED ARTISTS WHO PRODUCED MANY ELEGANT WORKS OF ART. THEY MADE VASES, LAMPS, FIGURINES, LIFE-LIKE ANIMALS AND SIMILAR WARES THAT WERE SOLD BOTH NATIONWIDE AS WELL AS ABROAD.
THIS IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF A BEAUTIFUL PORCELAIN WOMAN WITH HER ARMS STRETCHED OUT AND ADORNED WITH INTRICATE LACE BONNET.
