This is a very nice, heavy bronze vase circa 1910 or so. With a slightly flared base and lip, the sides sculpted overall in relief with leaves, vines and pinecones and set with a finely modeled putti blowing a small trumpet. Inscribed on side "J. Pfeffer" and base with foundry mark and stamped number 8956.
I used to have a rare statue vase in spelter by H & L Moreau, which I sold and of course regretted. It is hard to vision when you buy something how you will regret selling. It seems to bother me now more than it ever did. All pictures are owned by myself.
