Louis Albert Carvin was a French sculptor, born in 1875 and died in 1951. He was known primarily for his sculptures of animals. He worked in bronze, spelter, and terra cotta. Naturally, the bronze sculptures are considered the most valuable, and probably have the greatest appreciation value.
This is an absolutely charming little sculpture. It is well-detailed, typical of the works of Carvin.
