Vintage Bronze or Metal Figurine Child Standing Verdigris Finish Brass Leaves and Marble Base
Description: A fine vintage bronze or metal (we are not certain) figurine cast in the shape of a nude child standing on brass leaves and attached to a small round marble base. The child has a finish which is supposed to mimic age verdigris. Although the photos suggest that the finish is obvious and is light in color, the finish is truly very much reminiscent of true age verdigris. The child, probably a girl with short hair, is standing with her feet crossed and has a hand on her chest and her other arm stretched backwards with her fist closed. A very nice heavy decorative piece that would look great as a decorative accent in your home. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of the description.
Date: Uncertain but most likely mid to late 20th century.
Origin: Purchased at an estate auction in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: Measures ~7 1/2" high and the base is ~2 1/2" in diameter. This is a substantial piece weighing about one pound 10 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice piece. The figurine is nicely detailed and well done. Please see photos to appreciate beauty, details, and condition of the figurine. This is a very nice figurine with absolutely beautiful details and excellent condition. It would make a great addition to your quality bronze figurine collection.
Condition: Figurine is in excellent condition, with no breaks, cracks, repairs or losses. The marble base has a felt cover but you can feel that there is a hole in its center with what feels as a screw head suggesting the piece is attached to the base using a screw. Although the photos suggest that the finish is obvious to the eye and is light in color, the finish is less obvious and is truly very much reminiscent of true age verdigris. A great piece to add to your collection or decorate your home. Please see photo for additional condition information.
