Goldscheider “Return from the Well”
Large and rare Goldscheider terracotta statue titled “Return from the Well” originally sculpted by the artist E. Tell.
Portraying a young girl holding a water vessel in one arm and reaching down to pick up a second one.
Dating from around 1901-02, very few of these have survived the intervening years unscathed.
This is a typically Art Nouveau subject and the elegance of the young lady as she goes about her task is quite delightful.
Numbered 2357/96/19 and fully marked, the height is around 63 cm.
