Our porcelain figures come from a strictly handcrafted process. This means that, even in reproducing faithfully the original model, every single piece will be slightly different from all the others of the same kind, as in the drapes, hairs and painting.
Every piece is therefore unique and defined by our exceptional attention to details, the high quality of our materials and the certainty of having a handmade product, which are certified also by the markings we put under every piece, such as the "made in Italy" stamp and our signature or logo.
Porcelain figurine allegory of winter. It takes the form of a woman wearing a wide pastel blue dress, a puffy tulle petticoat and a light striped shawl in the shades of salmon color. She is sitting on a turquoise chair, her hands softly leaning on the back of the chair. One cheek is leaning against her hands as she looks back at the past seasons and to the sweet Ricordi d’Inverno, Winter Memories.

Every product created by Sibania is unique both concerning the realization process of every single piece and the production technology, which boasts its being inimitable by others. Each item is hand made and hand painted in our workshop, set in Vicenza (Italy). All clothes are made of thin, porcelain layers on which different kinds of textures are screen printed. These layers are cutted according to the characteristics of every single template. They are successively carefully applied on the figurine body. Hairstyles are also handcrafted depending on each figurine’s unique features. Faces, clothes and accessories are painted on the biscuit with non-toxic colors. The piece is eventually baked one last time (“third firing”). Any additional details such as violin strings or the Vespa kickstands are then applied on the finished piece.
This figurine belongs to the selections of products that Sibania has chosen to represent ourself, products that have a special meaning for our artisans and that were born during the most important moments of our history.
