A lovely bronze nude sculpture carries a sprig of victory laurel and a baton or walking stick, and is signed "F. Charpentier." Dating from the early 1900's, the figure has a genuine gold finish, the bronze base has a dark chocolate patina and a foundry stamp.
The finish is in extremely fine condition on this naturalistic statue, capturing the subject in mid stride.
