Antique French Limestone Chateau Caryatid from the Late 1700s

About

Found in France is this an impressive carved stone caryatid from the latter half of the 18th century. There were two of these adorning a facade of a chateau and were eventually replaced. There was an upper portion as witnessed by the hole at the top and perhaps, a lower portion adding to the shape of the caryatid beneath its flutes. There are traces of old C-Scrolls on either side of the flutes. Overall, it has beautiful wear and weathering, and would be striking as a console table base or a standalone architectural.
