Gilded bronze mechanical butterfly sculpture
Here is a wonderful find - a gilded bronze mechanical butterfly sculpture! This piece is highly detailed and very well cast. When you push down on the branch, the butterfly's wings open up. It dates to the late 1800's - early 1900's, and is likely French. The piece measures 4 7/8" long, 2 7/8" wide, and stands 4" tall. There are a couple of minor lines in two side branches, which probably occurred in production. They do not do through the entire branch. Not material, but mentioned for accuracy of condition. It's hard to find these early mechanical bronzes.
