BEAUTIFUL CARVED ALABASTER & BROWN VEINED MARBLE SCULPTURE ~ BESFIE JEANNE D'ARC (JOAN OF ARC) !

Fabulous estate collection sculpture...no signature is found but attributed to Professor Besfie (European School, late 19th century), bust of Joan of Arc which is marked on the base Jeanne d'Arc...alabaster sculpture with brown veined marble dress and base . Originally listed here in our store for $650.00 in beautiful, investment condition, she unfortunately had a bad day in the storage room as you can see. She has some nicks here and there on the shoudlers and base corners, and the worst of all, now has considerable damage to her nose. We do have one piece of the nose retained and restoration is possible by expert hands. Stands 9" tall including the plinth or plateau. Beautiful example from the European Art Nouveau and could once again be a truly gorgeous piece to add to your collection. Ask q uestions if you have them...will be carefully packed and shipped promptly upon confirmation of your payment.

We prefer our clients to have Public, rather than Private, feedback.
