incised A REINE CIMELIERE/amicalement/A. JANNIOT and dated 27

16 x 8 7/8 x 11 1/4 in. (40.6 x 22.5 x 28.6 cm)

Overall in very good condition. This bust presents with surface irregularities inherent to production. The plaster presents with surface scratches and abrasions throughout concentrated to the base. The proper left eye, tip of the nose and upper lip present with slightly more pronounced abrasions, not visually distracting. One chip to the upper corner of the base, measuring approximately 1/2 in. Occasional stains and soiling marks throughout. The hair, chest, shoulders and base with evidence of orange pigmentation, possibly inherent to the making. The reverse with an old paper label.
