Dutch Girl

Alabaster and marble bust signed by the Belgian sculptor G. (Gustave) Van Vaerenbergh.  Loosely sited on an octagonal marble base, the smiling young girl is wearing a bonnet and looking slightly to her right. The…

Girl in Large Hat

Very appealing bust of a young girl wearing a very large hat.  She looks a shy little thing and has such a cute face. Another offering from Goldscheider, this one dating from around 1904/05.  Signed…

Winter Day

Bronze and ivory very well-dressed lady, obviously clad for the cold winter weather.  She’s wearing a large collared coat and very stylish feathered hat while carrying a soft muff to keep her hands warm. This…

Van Hasselt Orientalists

Fabulous pair of Orientalist busts from Van Hasselt.  These – when they can be found at all – are occasionally seen individually but are very rarely  offered as a pair. The subjects are certainly Arabic…

Egyptian Temptress

Terracotta “Cleopatre” signed by Jacobs.  The classical Egyptian temptress as interpreted by this highly regarded French sculptor.  Attractively finished in a single rich reddish-brown colour, giving it a look almost of bronze. Wearing an ornate…

“Un Coquelicot”

Gold medal winning small bronze bust by Henri Godet from around 1890.   A really lovely sculpture of a curly-haired young lady emerging from a flower and smiling a little shyly.  Signed in the bronze which…

Old Breton Lady

A unique and quite stunning hand finished terracotta bust by the French sculptress Berthe Girardet (née Imer, b. Marseilles 1869). This is such a beautifully sympathetic sculpture, emphasising the strength and character in this lady’s wonderful…

Goldscheider ‘Theodora’

Top quality large Art Nouveau terracotta bust titled ‘Theodora’ originally sculpted by the artist Cherc for Goldscheider. Presumably this is Cherc’s stylised take on the Roman Empress Flavia Maximiana Theodora who was the second wife…

Bronze bust by Ernest Sperlaeten

A good bronze bust titled “Bohème” by the Belgian sculptor Ernest Sperlaeten.  Little seems to be known about this artist, other than that he was productive during the latter part of the nineteenth and early…

Very fine gilded bronze and carrara marble bust of a young girl by A. Calendi, about whom we have little information other than that he was artistically active during the late nineteenth and early twentieth…

La Villlanella

These little plaster busts turn up in France from time to time, variously titled, as this one, “La Villanella” (The Village Girl) or “Au Village” (From the Village).  A lot of them have suffered over…
