Terracotta, Stone & Plaster Figures

Art Nouveau Mignon

Late 1890's statuette of a seated, demure young lady wearing a long dress. Her long hair is loose about her shoulders and there are no shoes on her feet.  She has a small posy of…

Scattering the Seed

Very large and impressive figure from Friedrich Goldscheider of a farmer's wife – or daughter perhaps – sowing seed in the field. Originally sculpted by the artist Cherc in 1895 and signed on the base,…

Goldscheider Country Boy

Another fine terracotta statue from Goldscheider.  This one dates from c. 1898-99 and is of a young, barefoot country boy wearing a hat that’s a size too large for him and holding a cigarette between…

Classic Alabaster Maiden

Quite lovely hand-carved alabaster statue of an elegant and nearly nude lady, leaning in a very relaxed manner against a low headstone. Her slightly turned head, serene expression and easy, confident pose all combine to make…

The Echo

French plaster study of a pretty young Art Nouveau girl resting against a rocky background and cupping one hand to her ear, listening and waiting for an echo. Unsurprisingly titled “L’echo” and made around 1900,…

Geo Maxim Terracotta

Art Deco terracotta study of a girl holding a posy of flowers and a dove, with a lovely smooth, flowing line to the design. This is an attractive and elegant piece from the French sculptor Geo…

Young Musicians

A delightful pair of child street buskers plying their trade.  Brother and sister perhaps ? Painted in realistic colours, these two have survived the passing years very well as they must be well over a…

Goldscheider Girl of Capri

Water carrying maidens were a favoured subject of the Art Nouveau sculptors and here we have another one.  This is a delightful small terracotta statue from Goldscheider created by the artist E. Tell around 1898 and titled…

Fishy on a Dishy

This is a large and impressive plaster statue of a fisher girl holding a basket of fish and about to reach down to another at her feet.  Her long dress is swishing around her legs…

Goldscheider “Rebecca”

“Rebecca”, by the artist Cherc, perfectly captures the romanticism of the Art Nouveau movement, with her faraway look, her long flowing hair and soft draped gown.  She is pausing by a wall, hand on hip…

“Psyche”

An old French, probably terracotta (although we’re not a hundred percent sure) statue titled “Psyche”, who was the lover of Cupid. She is seen standing barefoot on rocky terrain with bow in hand and a quiver full of…

The New Pipe

Superb, rare and very desirable statue of a young black boy by Johann Maresch, titled “La pipe neuve”. The lad is cheekily grinning as he shows off his prized new pipe.  He is so pleased…

Goldscheider Water Maiden

Seldom seen Goldscheider statue by Otto Petri of a young maiden carefully bending forward on one knee and leaning towards the source of a spring, so as to fill with fresh water the two vessels…

Rebecca at the Well

This is the smaller version of Goldscheider's 'Rebecca' statue, but is still a very respectable size at around 44 cm high. Dating from c. 1902 it is a classic and lovely Art Nouveau sculpture from the artist…

Art Deco Peacock Lady

Pretty Art Deco lady and peacock.  The lady is relaxing in a garden in the company of a peacock, with her arm around the bird’s shoulder. Made in France around 1930 in gold and almost…

Belgian Girl

A young country maiden as depicted by the highly regarded Belgian sculptor Gustave Van-Vaerenbergh (1873-1927). As were so many during the Art Nouveau era, she is styled as a "Porteuse d'eau" or water carrier.  Wearing a…
