The sculpture is exceedingly rare, with only 6 copies made (this is #3). It was designed by Maurice Bouval (French, 1863 - 1920), and is of the finest quality made. Bouval was one of the most important French Art Nouveau sculptors, and this piece is an original. The sculpture weighs about 30 lbs., and the gilt remains brilliant throughout. It measures 17" tall, 8" wide and 8" deep. The sculpture is signed, with the edition size engraved in the back. It is in excellent condition, free of flaws, with a rich an even patina. Overall, the piece stands 23" tall, and the base is 6" tall, 11.5" wide, and 10" deep. It is also heavy, weighing about 35 lbs. The base is excellent condition, with some very minor chipping to the extreme edges, nothing distracting, and commensurate with age and use. The base is likely original to the sculpture, which simple rest on top of the base.The clock has not been tested, and a pendulum is included. It appears that the bell is missing inside the clock. The enamel dial is free of damage. We make no guarantees on the functionality of the clock. Maurice Bouval was born in Toulouse, France and was a student of the grand-master Alexandre Falguière who produced the Triumph of the Republic for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Bouval was a prolific sculptor of functional bronzes such as table lamps, sconces, inkwells, candlesticks, salt cellars, covered boxes, and some non-functional decorative pieces. From 1880 until the beginning of the First World War he was very successful in his sculpting, often gilding smaller bronze objects and usually incorporating the female form. His bust of La Nuit: Femme aux Pavots (Night: Woman with Poppies) is one of the more famous and successful Art Nouveau Bronzes with Symbolist content. Other famous works include Ophelia, Femme assise, Jeune femme, Le Sommeil, and Le Secret et la Pensive. Bouval’s bronzes combined, sensuous nymphs, water lilies, lotuses, and poppies with, a sometimes strong suggestion of symbolism and the supernatural. He was a champion of the Art Nouveau woman-flower hybrid and many of his works bear the stamp of the petit-maître. He participated in the 1890 Exposition Universelle in Paris and exhibited with the Societé des Artistes Français regularly, first as a sculptor, then in the decorative arts section. He also showed with La Maison Goldscheider. At least three different founders cast his bronzes- Colin, Jollet, and Thiebaut frères SHIPPING COSTS/TERMS SHIPPING COST FOR THIS ITEM IS $115.00 (2 boxes) This quote is for the Continental U.S. only, and the item will be sent via UPS or USPS.
