Gregoire," stamped 'EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE 1889 MEDAILLE D'OR', mid brown patination, 29", (74cm) high.Provenance: Deceased estate, Sutton Coldfield. Purchased from a leading Decorative Arts gallery at the Grosvenor Antiques Fair in 2000.This figure was produced in more than one size: a smaller 21" (53cm) version with later 1900 stamp (indicating a less desirable, posthumous casting) was sold earlier this year at auction in London.
