This sculpture, called The Bather, by Etienne-Maurice Falconet (1716-1791) was created in 1757 and a marble copy is now displayed in the Louvre. This is a reduced size bisque porcelain reproduction that was created some time after 1758 when bisque porcelain were made in replica of the original at the Sevres Porcelain Factory. It's a sculpture depicting a modestl...y but loosely draped nude young woman dipping her foot into the water. This sculpture measures 28" in height. There is a chip to the base ring that barely shows from a viewing angle and other small fleabites around the outer rim of the base, not visible. There is a firing crack in the draping near the woman's right foot, pictured. The sculpture is signed near the bottom of the base in back, Sevres, 11-95 VP (conjoined). It is beautifully made, it's elegant lines and romantic form so pleasing to the eye and touch.
