This highly decorative miniature wax seal originated from France, circa 1850. It is so teeny and so romantic. Wouldn't it make a super statue for a luxury dolls house? Made from real, high carat, buttery rich gilt bronze (not gilded metal alloy or brass, but heavy bronze). This tiny cupid figure has been produced to a very high quality, the casting being good with excellent crisp detailing.
The gilt bronze figure depicts Cupid with his bow and arrow, he is seen wetting his finger to shoot off an arrow....who will be the lucky recipient? He is sat upon a rich black stone base. The underside of the seals features the matrix reading ‘Eugenie.’ This is such a desirable little item, this would also make the ideal romantic gift.
Measuring: Width 0.75 inch (1.8 cm) by height 1 7/8 inch (4.8 cm).
Condition: Light surface wear, soft patina to the gilt bronze commensurate with age. An old, historic chip to side of the black stone base.
Shipping: FREE tracked and registered postage to UK & mainland USA only, unable to deliver to PO Box addresses.
