Dark patinated Trinkende
The much loved statue by Victor Heinrich Seifert titled "Trinkende" (in English Drinking or Drinker).
Now regarded as a classic, this example is a lovely casting with a dark, almost ebony coloured patination, the pleasing extra touch being the gilded bowl she is holding to her lips.
Originally sculpted circa 1900 and signed V. Seifert on the socle which also bears the foundry mark of Gladenbeck of Berlin.
This lovely statue was produced in three sizes, this being the mid-sized version. Mounted on a square verde antico marble base and with an overall height of around 38 cm.
