The standing figure of a cavalier holding a lantern and clutching a bible under his arm with a sword suspended from a chain. The base bearing the impressed signature "E. Picault", and with an brass label on the front engraved "Escholier, 14ieme Siecle".
Emile Louis Picault was a noted sculptor of historical figures, mythological subjects, and portraits. He was associated with the French Symbolists, and exhibited regularly in the Salon de Paris between 1863 and 1909.
The attention to detail is absolutely fantastic and the sculpture is extremely life-like.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
