A charming French 19th century Louis XVI st. patinated bronze, ormolu and onyx statue, signed Rousseau. The statue is raised by a cream colored onyx mottled base decorated by an ormolu beaded band and a front crest with the engraved title of the statue 'Muse des Bois Par Rousseau' (Muse of the woods by Rousseau). Above the base is the patinated bronze of a young girl resting on a tree stump while holding a branch which she is using as flute. She is playing the flute while finely chased ormolu birds are listening. Wonderful details with all original patina throughout.
