Pretty late 19th century Bronze inkwell, consisting of a tilting head opening onto a pen holder.
This Centenary Scene illustrates a Gentleman seated on a simple overturned Basket, and installed around a Barrel. His Chubby face and Laughing expression portray some Smile Wrinkles. Her head is capped with a Tricorn, revealing Short and Supple hair.
The Healthy Man is dressed in the Uniform of yesteryear. He sports a shirt, a patterned button-down vest and a pretty frock coat, all accessorized with a scarf. At the bottom, he is dressed in Marquis pants and his feet are shod in small Shoes.
The Subject which presents itself to us is clearly Jovial and Smiling. His head and his gaze are directed slightly to the right. It is with enthusiasm that he seems to greet Passers-by. This Lovable character suggests that he is well known to the Locals. One could imagine that he is itinerant: Navigator or even Trader by profession and that he would come to dock in the port. To his left, we see a Candlestick and a Cup on feet, then to his right, a Basket covered with a Tablecloth. Cutlery is placed on the edge of the Inkwell Barrel in front of it.
This representation is based on a Black Marble, rectangular in shape, 2 cm thick.
It is with a beautiful Realism and a fair Simplicity that the Artist shaped this Bronze. The apparent Sympathy and communicative good humor of this noble character will seduce his future buyer.
Period: Late 19th century.
