Customer Question
I have an August...

I have an August Moreau bronze sculpture of a lady standing in front of some flowers or a bush I like to know if it has any value ?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I had it in my possession for many years and it has a signature at the base of the statue of August Moreau, it stands 30 inches high, and it is very heavy bronze

Hello,

At your convenience, please add a clear, in-focus close-up of her face and also check for a foundry stamp, which would usually be around teh base of the figural.

Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

This is a 3rd quarter to late 20th century reproduction of a circa 1900 Auguste Moreau figure. These are commonly done with Moreau figurals.

On today's market, the realistic value of this is $300 - $400.

I'm sorry I cannot give a rating right now because I'm going for another opinion I don't know how you could determine that is a reproduction without seeing the actual statue in person.
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 11 months ago

Hello,

It is the quality of the rendering of the face on your figure that makes this a reproduction. On original Moreau works the faces are very defined and very different from how yours is rendered.
