About this item

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning and very rare early 19th century solid Bronze with marble base Grand Tour model of the Arc De Triomph by the world renown French company of LeBlanc Freres
This piece is fully stamped, three times inside the lid and once inside the actual body of the statue along with the serial number of 798
This piece is substantially larger than normal grand Tour pieces, most are small desk ornaments, this comfortably fills a side table on its own
As you can see it has a removable top, one would assume you would keep a small sewing kit or perhaps hid little valuable trinkets inside
For those of you that are unaware the “Grand Tour” was something educated young people did in the 18th and 19th century to learn and further educate on other cultures, they would pick up small trinkets as memory’s of the journey which would sit in pride of place in their library or study as conversation pieces when friends and relatives would visit, they basically proved you were well educated, well travelled and a person of culture
This piece is in sublime condition, the marble base has some chips in it but they is to be expected, it is well over 150 years old and must weigh 10-15kgs
Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition

Please also ask any questions before you bid and not after, all of our items are sold as seen and as listed

Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade
