A beautiful fine antique French Art Nouveau bronze patinated cast metal bust of Athene or Athena, Greek Goddess of War. Un-Signed. C. 1880-1910.
This is a great rare antique bust that you do not see come up for public purchase very often – especially in this condition. She is a wonderful depiction of this mythological Goddess in fine form that will fit nicely in any serious collection. Although she is un-signed – she is obviously from a Master French Shop.
The wonderful original bronze patina o this is beautiful. The great artistic detail and depth of casting is readily evident in this is fine heirloom art piece. Exactly what you expect from this art era.
This beautiful bust will showcase itself regardless of where or how you choose to display it. She will truly stand out and attract immediate attention. She would look stunning free standing in any Edwardian, Victorian or Art Nouveau décor. She would also look amazing on a period table, mantle, shelf or especially a vanity. Of course, she would also anchor any Sculpture, Bronze, Classical Statue or Athena Collection.
Measurements: Height: 10 Inches Width: 5 inches Depth: 5 Inches Condition: Excellent - No Damage Observed - Only very minor use and age indicators that only add character to this magnificent set.
