This listing is for a unusual dore bronze mythical beast sculpture mounted on black onyx base. The sculpture has fine details with bright gilt original patina. Age unknown.
Dimensions: 5 3/4" high with the base measuring 6" long, 3" wide and 3/4" high. Weighs 2 pounds.
Condition: There is a faint hairline type "crack" in the bronze at the back inside edge of one wing that I have no explanation for. Since the piece is bronze, it wouldn't have a stress "crack" and there is no evidence of its being dropped or other damage to the wing. I have a feeling it left the factory this way. The other wing has a slight recess where the wing attaches to the body that does not appear to be a crack and again, appears to be the way it was made. If these minor abnormalities bother you, then you probably wouldn't be happy with the piece, however, these are minor flaws and the piece makes a stunning presentation.
