These are amazing quality figures. Wooden bases 17cm across the base. Signed, L & F Moreau. Draped nudes holding water and flowers. One finger is missing, and the top of flower head at the back?
I cannot see any other damage. Some rubbing so please see pictures.
You are welcome to come to view. Moreau were two brothers who were perhaps best known for creating highly ornate clocks and garniture sets in both bronze and spelter. Both brothers were each well-known, listed artists listed in Davenports, Who's Who, etc. Their "L&F Moreau" studio was their business partnership. The Moreau Brothers also individually produced bronze and spelter pieces and signed them "Auguste" and "Hippolyte".
There is much confusion about the Moreaus and many people think that there were four brothers because of the habit of using both their first and middle names and their initials! Make a deal or two. I do not post on weekends... Ny questions please just ask and I will always try to help the best I can. I do work full time but will get back as soon as I can.
I sell mainly vintage items, I will describe the best I can but they are all used and will have some scratches and marks. So again please study them carefully and let me know if there is damage I have not pointed out. You could get it cheaper. I have a huge collection of things collected after years of compulsive spending so please keep coming back.
