Scattering the Seed
Very large and impressive figure from Friedrich Goldscheider of a farmer's wife – or daughter perhaps – sowing seed in the field.
Originally sculpted by the artist Cherc in 1895 and signed on the base, this very imposing piece is all of 83 cm high.
Painted in bronze shades with the lady's dress, scarf and clogs highlighted in gold.
There are a few small chips to the base but these would be quite straightforward to restore if thought necessary.
