FINELY CAST PATINATED BRONZE BUST OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
Unsigned, Inscribed “Franklin” along front edge
Item # 602TUP29


A most crisp casting of Benjamin Franklin, this gorgeous work of art features a surface positively devoid of casting blemish, the chasing and filing of details indicative of a highly skilled finisher. His hair is chiseled with such clarity, the eyes, nose and wrinkles being photographically rendered. The sculpture is finished in a nearly black patina with traces of red oxide giving a ruby hue beneath the warm waxed exterior. The bottom of the sculpture is inscribed in script “Franklin”. For serious collectors of very fine French bronze sculpture, this is a most striking find indeed.

Measurements:  13” H x 6 3/8” W
