Four Season Single Statue Figure on Base



This is a beautiful single Four Season Statue of a lady with the base. By the 1850s the copying of works of art had become a lucrative business all over Europe. Auguste Gerber was one of the manufacturers active in Germany, and a number of Anglo-Italian businesses were established in London, most notably those set up by Giovanni Franchi and Domenico Brucciani.

In producing these reproductions, they used piece-moulds, that is to say, individual moulds of each part of an original object. These moulds could be re-used so multiple copies of the same cast could be made. With the use of a 'reducing machine' it was also possible to make casts in a range of sizes, or even to reproduce small details of the original object, such as the eyes, lips and nose of this Four Season Single State Figure.
