|This is beautifully lost wax cast gilt bronze bas relief of French female saint on one side and burning French Gothic church on the other side-commemorates an event September 1914--probably the burning of the cathederal at Rhiems burned by the Germans in WWI-signed listed artist P. Charbonneaux-has foundry mark A. Lapointe Paris--believe piece was given to major donors for reconstruction of the church-fascinating piece that needs more research-mounted on solid marble stepped base-10.5 inches high-7.25 inches wide by 3 inches deep--some wear to gilt on saint side-otherwise no condition problems--best quality|
