This is a nice original bronze casting by the well known French artist P.J.Mene.It features a Pointer and a Setter chasing a Quail.Size is about 16 1/2 by 8 deep and 8 tall. It is pictured in the book Bronzes of the Nineteenth Century by Kjellberg. Mene was a prolific artist who had his own foundry for a time. He also used the Susse French foundry.This has a lovely chocolate brown patina in excellent condition with a bit of minor wear on the dogs backs as you would expect on a genuine old bronze.This was cast in several sections and screwed together as photos show.This sculpture usually brings $2000.00 to $3000.00 at auction + premiums.As an estate buy we have priced it to sell.
