The figurine is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, which includes information about manual production and decoration, as well as information about the product (name, name of the designer, year of design). In case of figurines, a unique product number is additionally entered into the certificate (assigned according to the factory marking systems).
The first figures were designed by the Institute of Industrial Design around 1955. A group of designers, including Henryk Jędrasiak, Lubomir Tomaszewski, Hanna Orthwein and Mieczysław Naruszewicz, were tasked with designing intimate ceramic sculptures to decorate a modern interior. In total, about one hundred models were created, which depict mainly animals, less often people.
In 1938-1939 Henryk Jędrasiak studied at the Faculty of Architecture of the Warsaw University of Technology, in 1946-1950 at the Faculty of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (diploma 1953, T. Breyer's studio). In 1955-1964 he was a designer at the Department of Ceramics and Glass of the Institute of Industrial Design. It was here that, together with Mieczysław Naruszewicz, Lubomir Tomaszewski and Hanna Orthwein, they developed a style of porcelain chamber sculpture - they simplified shapes, eliminated small decorative elements. Jędrasiak has developed more than 20 designs of intimate ceramic sculpture - the most popular models include, among others: Girl sitting, Sudanese, Sex bomb, Fish, or Rhinoceros, as well as fancy forms, including multi-armed vases. He also dealt with monumental sculpture, author of, among others: fountains at the Palace of Culture and Science, tombstones of K. I. Gałczyński and J. Tuwim at Warsaw's Powazki.
