D'après Jean Goujon (1510-1572)

Cariatides du Louvres


paire de figures monumentales en plâtre patiné ; sur des socles circulaires en métal laqué gris

H. 230 cm, 90½ in.

The over lifesize figures are in overall good condition, with a few minor losses and chips in several places, consistent with age and handling, in particular to the high points and to the lower edges of the figures.

There is some general surface dirt which can be easily removed.

The patina of the surface has been generally refreshed, as can be seen on the photographs.

Very decorative pieces.
