Small statue by an unknown artist in bronze, presumably from the early 1900s, representing a Napoleonic army soldier intent to urinate in a shell-shaped baptismal font. Very disrespectful statue that with a style between the profane and the ironic represents the unfriendly relationship between Napoleon and the Church before and after the Concordat of 1801. excellent workmanship and attention to detail make this a fun decorative object.
Statue consisting of 4 assembled bodies: pedestal, soldier, font and background.
Weight: 500 g.
Size: 14 cm height, 8 width
Condition: very good, the bronze was restored and the screws located under the base were replaced.

    Foto gaf geen getrouw beeld van de tas. De tas is waarschijnlijk eerst gevuld(bv papier) voor die te fotograferen. In werkelijkheid is het een slappe tas,i.t.t. originele Dooney& Bourke tassen.

    mi sembra normale che la borsa venga riempita da carta per fotografarla e nella descrizione non ho mai parlato di borsa rigida anzi di morbidissima pelle .eh come le ho detto nel messaggio privato la borsa è originalissima e di ottima qualità se lei poi si aspettava altro o non ha letto la descrizione non so come aiutarla .
