Very, very impressive c. 1835 bronze model of the Vendome Column, Paris

About

Spectacular bronze Grand Tour model of the Colonne Vendome, Paris, circa 1835. This very impressive patinated bronze model of the Colonne Vendome was likely cast near in time to the installation at the column’s summit of sculptor Charles-Emile Seurre’s statue of Napoleon, rendered as Le Petit Corporal. It appears these large models were not offered commercially, but presented to the late Emperor’s family and perhaps, military acquaintances. After the famed Sotheby’s Bill Blass sale (in which a somewhat taller version of this model was knocked down for $176,000) two other similar replicas emerged for sale, both of which had been owned by Victor Napoleon, aka Napoleon V - Le Petit Corporal’s great grandson. Stone base and bronze column capital restored. Dent to drum supporting figure as shown in photo.
