A richly detailed genuine bronze statue of a cavalier or harlequin depicts a jaunty young man with a sword and a mandolin. Although he looks straight out a Shakespeare play, his identity is unknown. The signature on the base is "P. Dubois." This sculpture has a rich chocolate brown patina in very fine condition, and appears to be around 100 years old.
Famed sculptor, Paul Dubois, was born in Nogent sur Seine in France in 1829 and died in 1905. He gave up the law to study sculpture in Rome for four years, where his wealthy family supported him. He won the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor of France, and his works are in the Musee d'Orsay and Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
This figure measures about 15" x 16" and 33" tall.
