Lovely decorative Antique French Gilded Figurine of a neo~classical maiden, seated on a Grecian plinth, deep in thought. Most likely after Etienne Henry Dumaige {1830 - 1888 } as this piece has all the signature traits of a Dumaige sculpture; the weight, sense of fluidity and movement, as well as grace. Dumaige was an exhibitor at the famous Salon des Artistes Francaises from 1863-1886. He was considered amongst the upper tier of French sculptors for his time. 

She is shown deep in thought, wearing layers of fabric that reveal glimpses of her feminity, she emanates her quiet inner strength and gracefulness. On a heavy marble base, sculptures like this were so beloved in the mid to late 1800's when everyone desired to have classical art and sculpture be part of their home. Cast in Paris, in the late 1800's, of white metal, then finished to resemble patinated bronze or gilt. Marked with the foundry mark on back Fabrication Francaise, Paris, manufacturers of important reproductions of famous artist's bronze sculptures.

She is not perfect, it appears there is a small part missing where she was holding something in her hand. If you can love her as is, at this wonderful price point, she is a sterling addition to your collection of collectible sculptures from France. Measures 8~1/4"h x 3~3/4" x 3~5/8".
