Many of Paris-based _fondeur_ Barbedienne's reproductions hit the market frequently, but this is the only time I've seen this the figure of Demosthenes. The bronze original of 280 BC was done by the sculptor Polyeuktos of Athens. The present figure is a reduction of Roman copy in marble which now resides in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen. Beautiful chocolate-brown patina, perfect condition. second half of the 19th century. Height: 16"/40 cm.
