Antique bronze baby smoking coming out of eggshell
Extraordinary antique bronze sculpture of a baby emerging from an egg to have a smoke. The baby has one hand behind his back, the other holding a cigar. He is wearing a bowed ribbon as a diaper. Looks to be hand cast mold and no makers marks. Verdigris on base and needs cleaning. May have been an ashtray or just a figurine.
We've never seen anything like it, and we bet you haven't either. A prize for any bronze collector.
