Product Description

A really cool artists impression of a military leader…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we believe it could date to the earlier to mid part of the 20th century. The piece is signed and dated by an artist with the year 1911 included. We do not believe this is the date of the build, yet it could be referring to the era of the individual depicted in the model. We understand that this piece is an artists impression of a military leader from the early 20th century and is of French origin

Hand crafted in plaster, the model is naively built yet there is some quality in the craftsmanship and the hand painted nature. Perfectly ‘free standing’ at circa 47cm’s high, we think this is a charming piece. It’s relatively heavy and oozes charm and authenticity. A great display piece or alternative decor for the home. We believe this a truly one off piece…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the piece is in good shape, yet there are some surface marks, scratches and paint chipping and some losses to the plaster in areas. There are a few tatty areas to the build and there are several layers of paint some old and some new (we think). We don’t believe the condition is detrimental to the look and feel, it’s such a unique piece. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
