French 19th Century Franco Prussian War Soldiers Statue, "La Retour"

Quantity: 
Price:  $295.00
 
Item #33419

Original era manufacture. Fine quality spelter statue of a returning soldier (La Retour) mounted upon a black painted, turned wood base. The overall height is just under 13 inches, with the soldier being around 10 inches. Large numbers of French troops went in to captivity during the Franco Prussian War of 1870-71. With some of the greatest losses ocurring after the Battle of Sedan and the surrender of the Fortress of Metz. The soldier sports an old gilt paint finish and his walking stick is slightly bent. The turned wood base has a few dings and dents, but for being well over one hundred years old he's looking pretty good.
