An Art Deco 1930s 'Coda Collection' anthropomorphic flask, container or decanter modelled as a Russian figure. This 'Curacao' liqueur flask was manufactured by Robj (Jean BORN known as ROBJ (1921-1931)) in France. Made from polychrome enamelled porcelain with a cork stopper.
This is a wonderful and functional piece of a Russian soldier wearing a pale blue jacket with yellow buttons with rosy cheeks and a black cravat. The base is white with thin blue stripes which match the colour of the jacket. His surprised expression brings a smile to your face. I think their designed to bring joy into your life.
The flask is stamped on the base with the manufacturer's label - 'Robj Paris. Made in France. The bottle stopper is cleverly made in the form of a hat which is difficult to spot when it's in place.
In good vintage condition. There is a 1 1/2cm scratch on the back of the blue jacket which I have illustrated in one of the images.
