Description
Sculpture, a plow and various agricultural tools - Realist - Bronze (gilt) - ca. 1900
France

Stunning gilt bronze and brass mastery sculpture representing a plow and various agricultural tools probably of French origin around 1900.

This piece was executed with such an eye for detail and variety of techniques that this is most likely a mastery sculpture of the artist sculptor to show his knowhow and workmanship.

It consists of dozens of different parts that were assembled as if it were a real piece of technology, using a different technique for each part. We can see examples of turning, threading, engraving, bending, casting, stamping, forging, plating, etc. This item is truly a joy for the eye!

This sculpture measures 16 at its longest and is in a beautiful original condition without cracks or restorations. Considering its age it has some normal wear on its gilt but has certainly added to its patina. with time some pieces went missing which doesn’t distract from the beauty of the item.

The item will be carefully packed and will be sent with the utmost care by track and trace.
