A highly decorative pair of antique French gilded metal decorative figures. This pair of classical flat back muses complete with three stringed Rebac and a Harp would once have adorned the finest French grand piano similar in style to those produced by Erard and Co. We know this by the small pinhead size securing holes seen around each figure. At some point they have been salvaged from the piano and made in to standing figures by the addition of a curved metal base stand to their rear. Each figure is beautifully cast with fine detailing, We adore the Directoire chair with Eagle head...very Madame Recamier. One figure has the impressed numbers M6445 to the reverse.
A rare and superb pair, you will have so much fun deciding where to display them.
Size:6.75" tall by 4.75" wide.
Condition: Good aged patina. One of the removable curved rear metal stands has a repair/wire extension added.
