This bronze is in superb condition except that the sword blade appears to have been broken at some point but there is a proper hardly noticable braised repair and the bronze is signed to the base. France circa 1890. 11.5 inches high by 6 inches wide by 4.75 inches deep ( 29 cm by 15 cm by 14.25 cm)
