Antique Victorian cast iron garden bust on pedestal circa 1860. This is a very well executed piece, sand cast in iron. It weighs 61 lbs. without the faux marble pedestal. The bust is 23 inches high, 13 inches wide and 20 inches deep. The faux marble pedestal is 36 inches high by 11 inches square. This artisan sculpture is unsigned but clearly sculpted by a master. The sculptor added color highlights into the mold during casting. This color accent gives the sculpture a deep rich shadowing effect, allowing for a true to life look and patina that glows in any light.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
