19th Century French Terra Cotta Bust of a Woman

This beautiful antique French terra cotta bust depicts a woman gazing downwards and to the left. Over time, and possibly due to some exposure of weather, the bust has experienced losses to motifs. Remnants of white plaster or gesso are interspersed throughout the piece. The overall look of the pinkish terra cotta, white coloring, and weathered features makes for an unusual and appealing bust that truly shows its age. Her hair is loosely pulled back and held by a garland of flowers, fruit and leaves. Her blouse is draped over her shoulders and down the side of one arm. The same garland of flowers, fruit and leaves is holding her draped blouse together at the front. This antique French bust will be a focal point wherever she is placed.

CONDITION: Good weathered condition. Bust has weathered with losses of motifs and finish as seen in photos. Repairs to base. Bust is structurally strong and sound..
