Weight 4kg


Description

A very heavy cast statue bust of a beautiful Art Nouveau girl.  With a flower in her long trailing hair , she has the countenance of a muse. Scrolling writing across the pedestal entitled MEDITATION, this statue is extremely heavy for its size so possibly cast in stone but with the weight of iron.

 Well finished in gold leaf with hand applied patina, she is signed to the back  possibly by Gross who worked for the GoldScheider company as sculptor. There is also a two number inscription with a germanic 7 and the number 9 . The Art Nouveau period would date from 1890-1910 so it is probably a design or pattern number rather than a year date.
