Very nice antique (19th century) F Barbedienne bronze sculpture bust of Lord Byron. It is signed on back F Barbedienne and has the foundry mark with Reduction Mecanique Collas Brevette in a circle. The head is bronze and is on a piece of marble which then has a base of black steel or metal and filled with plaster or concrete. It is 12.5" tall and 5.75" wide on each side of the base. These are known as Grand Tour pieces which were picked up by young men usually British elites who toured European cultural centers as part of their education.

The term reduction mecanique is a reduced-size reproduction of a larger work invented by Achille Collas and dates the sculpture some time after 1838 and probably before 1892.

Condition: very good for its age with wear to patina in areas and the marble has a couple chips. The metal base looks like a black gunmetal and shows some wear and discoloration. Not a common piece and guaranteed authentic.
