Goldscheider Sunflower Girl*
Huge, rare and quite fabulous Goldscheider statue of a young, semi-naked girl wearing a large floral hat and not much else besides.
Originally sculpted and signed by the artist E. Tell, this lovely piece dates from around 1900 and is coloured in the usual earthy and golden shades that suit this type of sculpture so well.
Model number 2211 and a very impressive size at just over 82 cm high. As to be expected with many of these old terracottas, there has been a little careful professional restoration but this has been expertly done and is invisible to the naked eye.
A terrific sculpture with great impact.
