Grand Babbit Metal Statue Representing an Egyptian Woman, England, 19th Century

About

Large Babbit metal statue a woman dressed as an Egyptian, a bare breast, showing part of a deck of cards, the rest of which is on the sideboard at her feet. We have the impression here of a fortune teller in an Egyptian costume, somewhere in the East. The babbit metal is an alloy of tin or lead, and antimony, used from the second half of the 19th century. It can be covered with a bronze tint, or a color, in this case a beige mastic. England, 19th century.
