B699 - SOLD
This is a sublime antique French plaster bust dating from the early 1900's.
The subject is an extremely pretty girl studying a book of music. She has thick wavy hair, beautiful eyes, and cupid's bow lips. She is very contemplative of her studies and is resting her head on her hand. Her dress gently slips off her shoulder.
She is beautifully painted in wonderful colour and detail. Her dress is a gorgeous shade of green. She has a gentle rosy glow to her cheeks and her lips and eyes have an almost doll like quality.
The plaster plinth has a plaque at the front with the title 'A L'Etude' and the back is engraved with 'FRANCE' and has the makers stamp.
The bust is in excellent condition with just a little minor distressing from the passage of time.
She measures 32 cm (12.5 inches) high x 21 cm (8.25 inches) wide x 20 cm (8 inches) deep.
This is a gorgeous bust to add an authentic antique French finishing touch and another divine brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
