C1860 Two French Bronzes
These two French Napoleon III bronzes are not a pair, but work well together in height and scale. The girl carries a basket of eggs indicating her virgin state. (A broken egg or a broken pot indicates loss of virginity.) The boy holds a drum, but has lost both the drumsticks. If the military drum has oblique meaning, it escapes me. The bronzes stand on marble socles and are both a bout 23 cm tall. $1350 each
