Antique & Stunning Bronze Kneeling Angel Sculpture Marked 1841 by T. Gechter

About the Item

This antique bronze by Jean François Théodore Gechter is of museum quality. This amazing bronze angel is by one of France's most talented, early twentieth century sculptors. Jean François Théodore Gechter (1796-1844) created this piece in what turned out to be one of the last years of his life and everything about this sculpture shows that this is the work of a seasoned artisan. Bot the anatomic details and the natural body posture are of the highest quality. The patination too is of 'museum quality'. When we searched for this particular work of art on the internet, we only found one of the exact same design, but that one had wings and it was priced at 4000 dollar. If this here kneeling angel ever had wings then someone at some point in time did the most amazing job restoring the surface and patina on the back of this angel. By the way, we also found one fake/copy on the internet and it looked terrible. This nearly 200 year old bronze is refined, pure Renaissance in style, soulful, serene and it breathes nothing but class and beauty. She truly is a joy to own and look at. Mind you, our fair price for this rare and striking angel includes perfect packing and also worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days. Maximum height x width x depth: 9.44 x 6.3 x 6.3 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.

  • Stunning & Powerful Altar Crucifix with Detailed Bronze Sculpture of Christ 1912
    Located in Lisse, NL
    Unique table crucifix and a wonderful work of religious art, dated 1912 and numbered. For us the most powerful statement will always be 'the truth will set you free'. It is what we have learned most from the life of Christ and of His teachings and it is the one thing we always think about whenever we look at a crucifix. Anyone who has tried to break down his/her ego and found a clearer consciousness in the process knows how healing and rewarding that journey can be. After that you can only be grateful for all the good things that are bound to come your way. Good things will come your way, because the universe needs people like you. Whomever created this amazing work of religious art too must have been inspired and motivated by the life of Christ, because how ever could anyone create a piece that is of such quality, so beautiful and so powerful at the same time. Both the beautifully designed bronze cross with the King of the Jews inscription and the amazingly detailed bronze corpus of Christ are of a quality that you will only rarely find on the open market. They are perfectly mounted on a stunning marble base and together they create one of the most impressive table or altar crucifixes...

Anyone who knows what it takes to create a bronze sculpture from start to finish realizes how special these works of art really are. For us to have found this rare, antique specimen more than made our day. Firstly, because we love the subject matter and secondly, because antique bronzes always are the best when it comes to the details and the patina. Both the serenity in Jesus' face and the way His cloth is perfectly draped around His sitting body are details that never fail to impress. The angelic faces of the two children who are clearly enjoying to be in His presence, make this meaningful and striking sculpture even more pleasant to look at.
