This charmingsubject is unusual for McBride who was an acclaimed Scottish sculptor best known for his portrait busts, his figures of great men of Scotland, including his bust of Andrew Carnegie, and figures carved for the façade of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
Small standard inclusions in marble. Few tiny dots (pinhead sized) on back of rock, probably from a paint splatter (can be removed). Minor and standard wear. Columnar Base (not photographed) with some chips around edges and surface abrasions. Otherwise overall very good condition.
