Figures Page 1
Our selection of white metal, marble and alabaster, plaster and non-bronze figural items.

Dutch Girl and Pony
This is a lovely figure, it is French, signed Bousquet and the quality of this spelter and ivoreen figure is exceptional, and so is the condition. She has a green and gold patina and the horse is patinated in a bronze finish. She is wearing clogs. Total height is 14 inches (cm) and it is mounted on a 20 inch (51cm) long portorro and brown marble base with green ribbed onyx intersections and total depth is 6 inches.

Ref: F413 . . . £595

Art Nouveau Spelter Sculpture
Another fine French spelter nouveau piece depicting a young girl at a well. Some original coloured patina is still visible including green vegetation and gold patinated dress and other coloured details to the fish well-head. This all sits on a stepped white striated black marble base. The original purpose of this piece I should imagine was for dried flowers as it has an internal metal lining which isn't waterproof. Condition is good-original, although the base appears to have some gouges at one end of the back. Size: 12 inches high, 8.5 inches wide and 6.5 inches deep.

Beautiful Art Nouveau Lady by Julien Causse
A stunning, bronze patinated spelter lady mandolin player by the French sculptor Causse. She stands nearly 2 feet tall on a shaped base of verdigris marble which bears the plaque which reads 'La Musique - Par J. Causse (Beaux-Arts 1900)' - No doubt about the date then! She is also signed in the metal and includes some musical notation enscribed in the stand on which she rests her foot. Please email me for close-ups. She is naked except for a cloth miraculously draped over her thigh and she is holding a mandolin which appears to have its original strings attached. She has a beautiful face (and body), and she is well built in the typical nouveau style, with a large bust, hips etc. and her hair is up in a bun with a delightful wreath in her hair, with some original highlighting to the patina in gold and silver still visible. This piece is stunning and in almost perfect condition with just a few very minor scuffs here and there. I have taken lots of close-up pics, and will be happy to send them on request. A picture of this same figure can be viewed in the Berman book of Bronzes, Vol 4 page 1078, item no 4301. Julien Causse - Born at Bourges, worked 1890 - 1914, studied in Paris under Falguiere and exhibited at The Salon des Artists Francais in the 1890s, obtaining honourable mentions in 1882 and 1900 and a third class medal in 1893. He also took part in the exposition Universelle of 1900 and specialised in small figures.

Avril par J. Causse
Another stunner from the prolific Causse. She is titled Avril (April) and is a bronzed spelter lady sitting on a crescent moon admiring a rose. The base is a lovely stepped and shaped Sienna red marble socle and bears a plaque showing the title and sculptor. She is also signed in the metal. She still shows signs of the original highlighting in gold and silver in places and is in exceptional condition with no apparent damage or repairs etc, and with just a few minor nibbles to the underside corners of the base. She is 24 inches tall, 9 inches deep and 7 inches wide and stunning! Many more pics available on request.
