Rare Antique Silver Sculpture Young Napoleon

About

A circa 1850s or earlier silver statue bust of a young general Napoleon Bonaparte. In the 19th century the preferred choice of aristocrats was silver objects of vertu to collect and decorate with to show their status and superior taste. The rarest of all was sculpture made from silver. This unique piece is a master work showing detail as minute as the four holes in Bonapartes six buttons, the strategic look and direction of his eyes, as well as Napoleons strong confident chin. All original patina now nicely tarnished and showing minor wear. Authentic antique bevelled porter marble museum base, stamped hallmarks on back.
