‘Un Coquelicot’ by Godet
Gold medal winning small bronze bust by Henri Godet from around 1890. A really lovely sculpture of a curly-haired young lady emerging from a flower and smiling a little shyly.
Signed in the bronze which is also inscribed ‘med. d’or’. Mounted on a circular marble base with attached title plaque and with an overall height of just over 21 cm..
This piece is listed in volume three of the Berman set ‘Bronzes, Sculptors & Founders’ on page 609 where it is given the title of ‘Blossoming’.
In fine condition with good all over yellowy bronze patination. The marble has at some stage been further attached to a thin circular base plate, presumably to protect a polished wood surface. We have not attempted to remove this.
