A very fine French bronze statue of a farmer resting. Entitled 'Le Soir' or Near the Evening Rest. Beautifully cast with the farmer holding his scythe (which is removable). I would date this to the late 19th century. Piece is signed and dated---neither of which I can read. I believe the quality of the piece speaks for itself. Overall size is 16 high and 5.5 diameter at the base. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Those of you who have purchased from me before know that I am very picky about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. However, please check the photos carefully---as they say `a picture is worth a thousand words' We will help arrange shipping for you; our experience with large or small has been excellent. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable. Please email us before you buy if you would like to discuss layaway terms. We have been in business over 30 years and our reputation is without flaw.
