  1. An ormolu and patinated bronze figure depicting Orpheus
    $1,180.00
    This charming little piece undoubtedly began life as an element on a French mantle clock. I've added a marble socle in lieu of the now vanished clock. It's an elegant figure with a feminine quality much more in keeping with the French Neoclassic aesthetic than that of antiquity, in which a strong masculinizing impulse may be seen. French, circa 1820. H: 14"/36cm. Learn More
  2. A patinated bronze figure depicting the Greek orator Demosthenes, inscribed at the base with the name of the bronzier, Barbedienne
    $1,780.00
    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. Learn More
  3. A patinated bronze figure of a boy with a goose, after the Hellenistic original, signed at the base by the bronzier, "Barbedienne" and stamped with the seal Reduction Mecanique A. Collas
    $1,780.00
    One of the greats of the Hellenistic period (the expressionistic era of ancient Greek art following the classical "Hellenic" period, this figure of a boy and goose is a reproduction in bronze of the one of the originals (the subject was frequently reproduced even in antiquity) in the Louvre. French, second half of the 19th century. H: 12"/25cm. Learn More
  4. A patinated bronze bust depicting Marie Antoinette, after the original of 1783 currently in the Louvre
    $1,780.00
    Portrait busts of Marie Antoinette were said by her contemporaries to capture more of her Habsburg hauteur (note the classic "Habsburg nose") than painted depictions such as many sentimental glosses done by Elizabeth Vigee-Lebrun. This bust is finely detailed (note the portrait cameo of Louis XVI) and has a very nice, complex patina. It's a replica of the bust in marble on display in the Louvre, the sculptor of which I haven't been able to ascertain. Any information would certainly be welcome! France, late 19th century. H: 20"/51cm. Learn More
  5. A Napoleon III silvered bronze jardiniere
    $800.00
    The rococo decoration is smooth and fluid and the casting quality is quite high. As is typical of silver and silver-plated bronze, there are black-ish areas on the surface. They could be polished out, but I hesitate to polish it to thoroughly. A bit of oxidation patina adds some charm in any case. Width: 16”/40cm. French, circa 1880. Learn More
  6. A patinated bronze bust of Napoleon, signed verso by the sculptor, BOSIO
    $3,280.00
    This handsome dark-mocha-patinated bust of Napoleon is signed by the French sculptor François Joseph Bosio (1769-1845), one of the great early nineteenth-century neoclassical sculptors. Extremely heavy and made from unusually thick bronze, this bust has a contemporary black marble socle (the pedestal is the same age as the bust itself). French, mid-nineteenth century. Height: 16"/41 cm. Learn More
  7. A patinated bronze figure of Lorenzo di Medici, after the original by Michelangelo, signed at base Michel Ange
    $1,880.00
    Condition is perfect. An exceptionally fine and heavy bronze in an imposing coffee-colored patina. circa 1880. Height: 20"/50 cm. Learn More
  8. A large patinated bronze figure depicting one of the Marly Horses, after the original by Antoine Coysevox
    $1,780.00
    Condition is perfect. Every element is present: stirrups, bridles, halters, reins, everything's there. French, late 19th century. Height: 22"/56 cm. Learn More
  9. A patinated bronze figure of a leaning muse, after the Classical original, signed Red'n Sauvage
    $580.00
    An exquisite study of a pensive-looking muse. Note the liquid quality of her tunic and the elegant floral design of her hair accessories. It is signed 'Red'n Sauvage'. Frédéric Sauvage (1786-1857), like his contemporary Achille Collas, who was to partner with the Barbedienne foundry in Paris, devised a reduction technique, a 'réducteur' allowing for the accurate reproduction of famous sculptures in multiple sizes. French, second half of the 19th century. H: 16"/40cm. Learn More
  10. A bronze figure of a French naval fusilier bearing a plaque with the inscription APRES LE COMBAT and signed Afrie at the base
    $1,180.00
    This piece by the popular and prolific French sculptor Charles Anfrie (1833-1905) depicts a French soldier - a naval fusilier is my best guess - mopping his brow after a tough day at the office. This is an extremely high-quality bronze, dense and heavy. The marble socle is new. Perfect condition. French, circa 1900. H: 20"/50cm. Learn More
