This wonderful bronze sculpture is of a young child, perched atop a leafy column with a small book or piece of paper in its hand. The youngster is looking down to the dark green marble base in wonder. The bronze is unsigned but may have a foundry mark: there is a small triangle in the base that I have seen in some of the French bronzes. It is very charming and will be a great addition to a desk or shelf, a reminder when one's own children were small and found great treasures in everyday life.
Measurements are: 12" high and the base is 4" by 4".
