Item Description

An old French, probably terracotta (although we’re not a hundred percent sure) statue titled “Psyche”, who was the lover of Cupid.

She is seen standing barefoot on rocky terrain with bow in hand and a quiver full of arrows at her hip.  The faraway look on her face is typical of many of the stylised interpretations of mythological characters that were produced in the late 1800’s.  These romantic subjects were extremely popular at that time.

Very nicely painted in the muted colours that suit this type of old sculpture so well.

Unsigned but marked with the letter ‘G’ and numbered.  The height is around 63 cm.
