Medieval French Knight Bronze Sculpture
Our patinated bronze figurine of a medieval French knight dates from the 18th to 19th century and is mounted on an ebonized wooden plinth. Apparently unsigned.
This proud gentleman is wearing a mali coif with bascinet style helmet, jacket with chest decorated with rosette and quatrefoil motifs and shoulders with lion masks with arms protected with coif, and holding a knightly sword or longsword.
It is well sculpted but crudely cast and finished, with light brown patina. It is in good condition. There are scratches, nicks, surface dirt and grime, all consistent with age.
