Condition Report For Lot# 1074 :
the tall figure retains its old bronzed patina with some wear and scratches but no losses, and has both a signature and plate at the bottom "Nereides, Aug. Moreau". The figure stands on a nicely marbleized and turned wood round base. The swinger has an unsigned time-only movement within the green-painted ball head. The lower green ball should be correctly reassembled, the top crest needs one attachment corrected, the suspension unit needs repair, and the minute hand is absent. This large model certain deserves restoration. Ht of figure 28", ht of swinger 36"
