Antique French Marble Bust of a Young Woman, Wooden Base, Early 1800s

This is a beautifully sculpted antique bust of a young woman gazing downward.  Her head is covered with a hat shading her face and hair.  Her hair has been tied back into a pony tail which falls gracefully over a shawl covering her sundress.  Soft curls surround her face, making her appearance very soft and innocent.  This sculptor has captured proportion and image masterfully.

CONDITION: Very good condition. She has a very minor chip to the right top of her shawl and minor pitting to the marble. A small, but well done restoration. Base is probably modern

H=101/4, Footprint=11x11 3/8
