Extraordinary Antique Winged Nude Fairy & Satyr Bronze - For Sale

Extraordinary Antique Winged Nude Fairy & Satyr Bronze
Price: $25000.00
Extraordinary gilt and silvered bronze fantasy sculpture depicting a nude winged gilt bronze fairy pulling the hair of a gilt bronze satyr who has the body of a snail coming out of a snail shell. In her other hand she holds a silvered bronze grape vine. The snail shell is very naturalistic. Her expression and the composition of this extraordinary sculpture are beyond belief. It is signed Ferville-Suan (Charles Georges Ferville-Suan 1847-1925). This amazing French sculptor created one of the most unusual and beautiful mythological fantasy sculptures that I have seen in my more than 45 years as a collector, a dealer, buyer, seller, and appraiser of rare antique bronze sculpture. This extraordinary sculpture is from my own collection and has never been for sale on the internet before. The base is terracotta. The quality and composition far surpass any mythological or fantasy bronzes we have ever had the pleasure to offer for sale. This extraordinary sculpture measures 12 inches high. From the fairy's toe tip to the satyr's finger tip it measures 9 inches across. The fairy measures 9-1/2 inches from toe tip to wing tip. This is a unique sculpture certain to be one of the most important pieces of any collection that is lucky enough to have this bronze added to it. The condition is superb. This museum quality sculpture will surely delight and give much pleasure to its new owner. Guaranteed to please the most particular connoisseur or collector. (Item #72285)
