You're bidding on a small - 4 1/4" tall on 4 1/8" X 3 1/8" marble base - specter bronze sculpture. Brass plaque on the base indicates "La Nuit" by Virgile Morey. A beautifully expressive work depicting a beautiful sleeping maiden upon what maybe is a cloud, nestled into the crescent moon. Morey was a French sculptor known for working in classical and Art Nouveau styles and motifs. Guesstimating this piece to be circa 1910. Perhaps needs a detailed cleaning, but good overall condition - nice dark patina, and still bottom-felted.
Please review photos carefully to make your own determination of overall condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to bidding - thanks for looking!
