SULPHIDE, . Figure is a full length bust (head and torso) of a man on a pedestal. Armscrossed over his chest. No one has ever conclusively identified who the man is. I have seen itidentified as various composers and as various politicians and statesmen. I believe it is RichardWagner, the composer. Exceptional detail to the figure. Tiny air bubbles on the torso, but none onthe face. Well centered. Large marble. One melt spot near the top. Incredibly rare in thiscondition. Germany, circa 1870-1915. 2-1/4" (a hair over).
