We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning very rare and highly collectable Dominique Alonzo gilt bronze statue of a young girl titled “La Vuelta Del Mercado” which roughly translates to the “The Return To The Market” I have two of these statues, the second young lady carrying the barrel is listed under my others for sale and not included in this auction This is a known piece as in its part of his listed works, very highly collectable and extremely hard to find, these statues almost never come up for sale and when they do they command a premium, the very basic or off-trend models start at £2500 and go up to around £9000 for the truly stunning, just have a quick look on 1stdibs and you will see what I mean The sculpting is pure genius, just look at that beautiful sublime face and the features. This piece is serial numbered to the base 6869 or 6989 depending which way you look at the number The condition is as you would hope, it has nothing but honest patina, no chips cracks dent or marks that I can see anywhere, Dimensions Height 23 cm Width 7.5 cm Depth 7.5 cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses Condition Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
