For your consideration is this Very Fine pair of Antique French Bronze Pheasant sculptures. Peculiar in their bearing the signature of A. Barye (Alfred Barye 1839 - 1882) on one, and J. Moigniez (Jules Moigniez 1835 - 1894) on the other.
Period: Late 19th or very early 20th Century.
This pair of Exquisite Bronzes still have their original red felt on the bottoms. Both of these sculptors were at the top in their field, and both had their models continue to be used after their death.
These are surely the work of a real Master! The one signed Moigniez measures overall 6"L x 4-7/8"H x about 2-1/2. The one signed A. Barye measures overall 6-3/4"L x 3-1/2"H x 2-1/2"W
Both are free of cracks, chips or repairs, and have their original Patina. Marked - Made in France
