French spelter Statue circa 19c


Out of stock


French spelter Statue circa 19c and a very nice model with no issues. The Plaque on the copper plate base says “La Victoire” and then adds “courannant le travail” – which all translates to “The Victory – crowning the work”. This would be a celebration of the working man as further evidenced by the anvil, hammer,wheel and axe all moulded into the statue. Winged Angel or cherub on the toga dressed man. There is a small round centime which states “fabrication Paris France” = made in Paris France.

Lovely patina and circa 19th Century from my research.

This is a sizeable sculpture standing at 88cm tall and the base is 30cm in diameter.
