Martha Jackson Cornwell Bronze Sculpture Cast Young Girl and a Turtle

Up for auction this week, I have this beautiful, Cast of a Young Girl and a Turtle, by the artist, MARTHA JACKSON CORNWELL (1865-1955). This piece measures approximately 7" tall and the rectangular base measures 4" x 1 3/4". it weighs 2 lbs 6 oz. As you can see from the 4th photo, the base appears to be impressed with CORNWELL, with letters above and numbers to the right above. I cannot make them out. I am not a collector, so I'm sure the collectors out there will know exactly what the marks/dates/numbers mean. Also, note the bottom has a fabric glued to the bottom. It has come unglued and I left it as is. I didn't want to reglue nor did I want to try and remove the glue.

Kindly email me if you would like additional photos or if you have any questions.
