A wonderful desk or shelf accessory, this is a fine 19th century bronze sculpture, a Classical figure forms the housing for a room thermometer. Function and beauty! Mounted on an oval plinth of fine polished marble, it's going to be someone's treasure soon. Overall, it's 8.5" tall, and the base is 5.25' x 3.75" and about 1+" high. A shepherd figure with crooked staff, it is in the Classical pose, format and rests and arm upon a beautifully sculpted column.
Very good condition, other than a tight line restoration to an old break at the wrist, which we have left white so you can see it clearly (visible in our photos) there are no other signs of damage or loss. A nice dark bronze patina on the figure. The thermometer is original, heavy brilliantly polished brass on the column. Photos tell all.
