This bronze mounted on a marble base was made in Europe in the late 19th century. The quality and style of the piece is possibly French. It is not signed. The piece is 7 ½ inches high. The lady is very well modeled with fashionable clothing and accessories of the period. There is fine detail right down to the buttons and braiding on her jacket. The patina is in excellent, original condition. The base is made of a deep salmon colored marble. This bronze is in excellent original condition and is definitely not a reproduction.
