Goebel Napoleonic Military Figurine Captain 1808
This 8 ½ inch figurine depicts an officer in Napoleon's Army. The uniform color indicates one of the foreign units serving Napoleon, most likely Swiss.
The original was made and designed by Gerhard Bochmann, one of Goebel's best known designers and sculptors. Excellent detail and hand-painting. Excellent condition, with no defect of any sort.
Marked with the Goebel V-Bee mark of the time, and 'Goebel W. Germany'. ''1973' and 'LF13' are impressed into the bottom of the base, and the Bochmann name is impressed on the top of the base, which measures approximately 2 ¾ inches x 2 3/4 inches. There is another small mark, possibly a painter's mark. The base is lettered 'Capitaine 1808'.
This is one of 8 figurines which I am offering from this series, and all are shown in my final photo.
