Antique Spelter Bronze Statue French Medieval Swordsman Clock Sculpture 14":
You're offerding on an antique cast statue - 14" tall and 4 1/2" base diameter - white metal construction with applied gilt patination. Figure depicts a knight or nobleman - I'm guessing he's French based on style, appearance and the crest design on his chest. He brandishes a sword, shield raised. I'm guessing he might be a clock-topper type statue that were often used to decorate 19th Century mantle clocks.
Good condition for age and type - appears to be original finish - it has a copper-like appearance, but some wear and dark patina. His sword is intact and appears complete - note that there does appear to be some cracking on the back of his shield arm - but it appears stable and not in danger of breaking. See photos - SOLD AS IS AS FOUND.
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!
