Bronze Lady and Panther*

Item Description

Lovely old bronze by the Polish sculptor Paul Philippe of a woman riding on a panther.

She is seated almost side-saddle with one arm raised in front of her as she leans back slightly against the other, which is supporting her on the animal’s back.  Wearing a gown and ornate headdress incorporating leaves and berries, she looks completely at ease as the panther strides forward while appearing to give out a low growl. 

An original and early casting with great detail to all areas – the faces, hands and feet and the folds of her dress are all richly detailed.

Mounted on a well proportioned verde antico marble plinth which shows further carving detail to the front.  

Dating from before the First World War and showing an attractive age-worn patina, this was cast at the Goldscheider foundry and shows their applied bronze seal mark which was only used until 1914.  Signed in the bronze P. Philippe.

The base measures around 24.5 by 11 cms. and the overall height is approximately 30 cms.
