A very fine bronze of Mozarts hero from the Barber of Seville-FIGARO-FIGARO-FIGARO--Green verdegris patina--34.5 inches high with 12 by 10 inch base--this is an imposing sculpture of Figaro with his barber basin in late 18th century Spanish dress-weighs around a 100 pounds--no condition problems-cast with lost wax process-finished beautifully-late 19th century--the glorious opera is about love,manners,politics and class-however Figaros name has been used for newspapers,restaurants,and cat food and many other bewildering products--so the sculpture may end up as a business mascot rather than grace the interior of a richly decorated salon--uncertain whether sculpture is French or Italian
