~ Large Gilt Spelter Statue of Neptune By Gustave Trouillard ~

A large and dramatic hollow body spelter statue of the Roman God Neptune after a sculpture by Gustave Trouillard.

Gustave Trouillard was a 19th century French sculptor. Born in Paris, Trouillard was a Salon exhibitor from 1844 to 1853.

Neptune is depicted standing with one leg knelt on the head of a sea dragon which curls around his other leg. He carries a trident in one hand with the other arm raised, pointing a finger to the distance. He rather reminds me of the early internet meme "Techno-Viking"!

The figure is upon a decorated spelter base with the legend ‘Neptune’ within a ‘frame’.

Neptunes body has a gilt finish whilst his robe, the dragon and base all have a greenish patina.

The statue is signed ‘G. Trouillard’.

~ Dimensions ~

The statue has a base diameter of 26.5cm (10 ½ inches) and stands at 76cm (30 inches) in height.

It weighs 17.7Kg

~ Condition ~

The piece has some small marks/dings and wear to the finish in parts but has sustained no major damages.

Neptunes trident is a little bent out of shape near the top and has a little rust but is in a decent order overall.
