A superb pair of bronze busts titled “Coul” and “Metz” with incised marks on square plinth bases, signed Lebroc to the rear, Jean Baptiste Lebroc (France, 1825-1870).
This is a simply outstanding original pair of bronze sculptures of incredible charm and remarkable execution, a pair that even the most discerning collector of classical french bronze sculptures will cherish for a lifetime.
The pair features Bacchante and a Satyr, a faun leering at a young Bacchante, or female follower of the Roman God Bacchus.
In excellent condition and as seen in the accompanying photographs, the bronze pair displays beautifully.
