Here we have a most wonderful Antique Bronze Coated Mythological Roundel Sculpture Signed Jean Baptiste Germain. It is signed JB TE GERMAIN and dated 1868 on the left side and what I believe to be the title of the piece opposite.The roundel has high relief sculptures of a satyr holding a putti and a young Satyr at his feet. Banjos, grape leaves and a symbol of fertility all stand out in the landscape. I believe this to be one of four of a set.
This is a rare and extremely well sculptured high relief three dimensional roundel by a very important 19th century French sculptor Jean Baptiste Germain (1841-1910). Germain has auction records for his bronzes. The most expensive sold for $35,992.00 at Sotheby's London in 2007. A set of 4 bronze coated roundels sold for $18,408.00 at Sotheby's Olympia in July 2007. This is a very high relief bronze roundel with a wire attached to the back where one could hang it on a wall along with two bolts where it may have been affixed to something.
I found this piece in an old warehouse as part of a retired antiques dealers collection. It is in wonderful condition and measures 10-1/4'' x 8-7/8''.
