19th Century Palais Royale Terracotta Bust Of Rousseau After Houdon With Label For Sale
You are offerding on a fine and very rare terracotta 19th Century bust of the Enlightenment philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau. C'est magnifique! This is a finely made image of the great 18th Century writer after the Houdon original and has both the impressed maker's mark on the back of the plinth as well as having the miraculously remaining paper label of the retail gallery from which it was sold in the mid 19th Century in Paris at the Palais Royale! The bust is in good anitique condition. But there are small chips along the bottom of the plinth base and the main bust was glued to the pedestal resting on the plinth as a repair which is evident when seen from below. However this is not such an evident repair when seen straight in front. The bust measures 8.50 inches high. THIS ITEM IS SOLD "AS IS".
