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 to excellent condition, no breaks and no cracks, no loss. A nice dark bronze patina on the figure. The thermometer is original, heavy brilliantly polished brass on the column. Photos tell all.
