Gargoulette drinker

Unnamed

End 19th century – Beginning 20th century

Metal, measures approximately 79 cm with its base, 71 cm alone

I like to buy metal sculpture when they are large and well chiseled and patinated because for a tiny part of its bronze equivalent, we have spectacular pieces that play the game well … As my children say, ” it does it” !
A drinker refreshes himself by drinking with a “gargoulette” which keeps its contents very fresh. He is probably a Spanish coachman: although his head is protected by a scarf, he has his hat and his whip at his feet. I have not seen a signature or a foundry mark: it might be necessary to separate it from its base to check, but it is original, in wood covered with old damaged velvet I did’nt to have the heart to do that.
