Antique Classical Silvered Bronze of Women Reading a Scroll, France, Circa 1870

This antique French silvered bronze statuary on painted wooden base depicts two women in classical dress reading a long scroll. The woman who is seated upon a wonderfully detailed small bench, holds a writing instrument. The other woman is to her side with one arm around her friend’s shoulder. The scroll is held by both as they read what has been written. Both have just a hint of a smile upon their faces. The overall scene is one of complete serenity and contemplation.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor rubs to silvering. Minor losses of black paint to base. Incised numerical codes on top back of bench.
