Antique Gilt Spelter Bronze Statue French Medieval Pikeman Clock Sculpture 18":
You're offerding on an antique cast statue - white metal construction with applied gilt patination. Figure depicts a Medieval pikeman - I'm guessing he's French based on his appearance and style. He stands, brandishing his pike - 18" tall to the top of the pike, base diameter is about 5". I'm guessing he might be a clock-topper type statue that were often used to decorate 19th Century mantle clocks.
Note some condition issue - pike is slightly bent and bowed, but no breaks. Some marks and scuffs to the finish, but overall still nice appeal, good for age and type. Please review photos carefully to make your own determination of condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to offerding - thanks for looking!
