    Hello Family ... It's been awhile, and I've found another piece I need your help on ...
    It's an Framed Antique Arabic / Middle Eastern Sculptured Figurine.
    The dimensions are 19"w ... 24"h ... & 3.5" in depth.
    It's not a relief, yet made of a solid metal (type unknown) ... also very heavy for it's size (approx. 35-40lbs)
    Signed "Hardy" ... which I do not believe is the artist name but maybe applied for identification purposes (by owner?).
    It has been inspected by a couple of local Antique Dealers who have said the circa is 1890 - 1910 (???)
    Can anyone help or supply additional knowledge/information on this piece? Ever seen one? ... I cannot find anything in "cyberspace".
    Thanks!

      Your a true treasure of knowledge for this website vetraio50 ... to answer the question, no there is no initial/letter before the name "Hardy".

      vetraio50 ... highlight the 2nd photo/image and look at the lower right hand corner. There you can see the name "Hardy". Thx again.

      I have seen these before, I don't have time to check my books, I know I have seen the signature before and these were made of Spelter in France. No owner would scratch their name on a sculpture unless they were a complete moron.
