This is a magnificent antique Russian gilt bronze and malachite mounted model of a maiden, circa 1870 in date.
This exceptionally executed cast bronze figure features a beautiful maiden dressed in splendid period attire and seated gracefully on a stool while gazing downwards. Her hair is gracefully tied up allowing her sumptuous earings to be visible.
This high-quality hot cast solid bronze figure was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
The sculpture sits on a stunning rectangular malachite base, which adds extra opulence to this highly attractive artwork.
There is no mistaking the unique quality and design, which is sure to make this set a treasured piece by any discerning collector.
