Pair Antique French Emile Bruchon Spelter Statue Figure Figurine Clock Pieces For Sale
You are offerding on a pair of French spelter statues, mounted on beautiful wooden bases, with some sort of marble looking finish, most likely from late 1800's. The clock and topper is not included in the sale.It is hard to find a matching pair, generally single pieces are easy to find, appx 17-1/2 inches tall from base to top. Very impressive and detailed castings, you cannot beat the beauty of french castings. The wooden bases have name plates "Denicheuse Par Bruchon" and "Passage Du Gue Par Bruchon", each of the statue is also signed by French sculptor, Emile Bruchon (1880-1910) .Both the statues are in good condition, with some light green finish, which possibly is original, I dont see any major damage or issues, having said that I am not claiming that they are damage free, there might be issues beneath the finish, so please review pictures or ask for more. I am not expert on statues. However the girl's fingers looks like repaired, as one of the fingers is thinner then the other, and roughness on the others. Again, you be the judge, I am not claiming them to be damage free, there is a 1/2 inch stress crack on the girls shoulder, hard to capture, and there might be more, but I have'nt seen them. The finish for the most part is quite good on statues but there are areas with loss of finish, and dust, it seems that some one tried to do touch up on some spots. I was told by a fellow er that there might have been a bird in the girl's hand.Every thing described to the best of my knowledge, Please see pictures, they are a part of description, or ask for more info/pictures, this is a used item, and there is usual wear/nicks with age, dont assume it to be perfect, I am selling it as is, parts, no gaurantees, . The clock & topper shown in the picture are NOT included in the sale. The first picture is just for reference, you are offerding on the pair of statues only. Please ask for more pictures or details or send me your email address. S&H is fixed $ 59.99 in continental US , all other places extra, insurance is required and will be added as handling charges, and depends on final price. I accept paypal, local pickup is welcome but terms are cash, no returns on this item. The statues will be removed from their bases, for safe shipping, and the winning buyer has to put them back.
