A Pair Of 19th Century Bronze Busts On Their Original Carved Plinths
Period: 19th Century
A pair of 19th century bronze busts of two important French 16th century brothers Francis and Pierre Pithou. Born in Troyes during the 16th century they wrote many influential legal and historical documents. Pierre’s important library of documents and manuscripts are now houses in the Bibiotheque Nationale in Paris. The busts are dated 1850 and signed by Delecule. They stand on their original walnut plinths that are carved with coats of arms. At 17″ high they are a good scale and would make ideal fire mantel decoration pieces.
