This is a interesting large original bronze statue titled L'ABC by A. Capalda a Italian artist.Nothing seems to be known about the artist that we could find! There is supposed to be a listing in Benezit but the spelling is A. Capado.We believe this quality bronze was cast in the 1920's from the style of the work.There is a set in slug in the back from the Cassa bellas Artes in Buenos Aires. They seem to be a retailer as we found several bronzes cast in France with their set in coin.Some sites list them as a foundry but we could find no evidence of that.The statue itself is 12 high 21 1/2 wide and 9 deep. The original stone base is 2 1/2 by 23 1/2 by 12 inches and the 2 weigh in at 85 lbs.We did find one listing of this group selling for $4400.00 in London in 2004.
