An ormolu and patinated bronze figure depicting Orpheus
$1,180.00

Availability: In stock

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.
