Simply wonderful! This 19th century petite bronze sculpture by Auguste Nicholas Cain (1822 – 1894) is modeled as the comical looking Poule de Houdan. This old French breed is from a family of crested chickens originating from Yvelines which is west of Paris; and the breed’s name derived from the commune of Houdan.

Auguste Cain produced many superb Animalier bronze sculptures, including a variety of chickens and crowing roosters, but this charming and funny looking crested chicken has to be one of his best and most amusing models.

Measures approximately 3.7 inches tallest. Polishing and age related wear to dark brown patina, especially on sides at contact points. Signed in Bronze, CAIN. Weighs approximately 14.25 ounces BEFORE packing. Ship standard size 8x8x8.
