French Soldiers by Etienne Henri Dumaige (1830-1888)
Our pair of patinated bronze figures by Etienne-Henri Dumaige (1830-1888) depict a rifleman and volunteer drummer.
Each signed "H. Dumaige" with nameplates that read:
APRÈS LE COMBAT, GRENADIER DE 1792 DUMAIGE
AVANT LE COMBAT, VOLUNTAIRE DE 1792 PAR DUMAIGE H.C.
Each approximately 25.5 by 12 b 11.5 inches.
Condition of each is good. There is rubbing wear and old polish covering each nameplate, scratches and nicks. Mount for rifle is a little loose, as is the separately cast bayonet.
Additional images forwarded upon request.
