Item Description

Superbly cast bronze bust from the highly regarded French sculptor Henri Jacobs dating from around 1910.

With superb detail to every facet and good even dark brown patination, this is a bust that can only be admired more each time it is looked at. 

The young woman has a classic look with her ornately styled hair and her dress adorned with flowers and leaves.  Named Ondine, in French folklore she was a breathtakingly beautiful water nymph blessed with eternal youthfulness as long as she didn’t fall in love.  Needless to say… 

Signed H. Jacobs to one side and with a height of approximately 34 cm.

This rare bust is In excellent condition  – an absolutely lovely piece of Art Nouveau artistry.
