My latest bronze sculpture find. A Franz Iffland bronze sculpture. This one was made in France and titled "Joli Chat" , meaning "Beautiful Cat". I'm told that this is from the very early 1900's. It s signed with the sculptor's signature on the side of the chair. I really love the detailing of this sculpture, especially the cat under the chair. I've seen several reproductions of this sculpture, but it's definitely the first of this particular sculpture that I've seen cold painted like this one as any others I've ever seen are not. There is another sculpture that goes with this one and I hope to add that one to my collection eventually.
Franz Iffland (1862–1935) was a German sculptor and painter who worked during the late 19th and early 20th century.
Many many thanks to you all for stopping in for a look!!!! I do appreciate you all very much!
