American Bronze Portrait Plaque of a Gentleman in Relief – by E.A. Kretschman – Sculpted 1876v** SOLD ARCHIVES **v
A wonderful large and heavy bronze portrait plaque of a gentleman – maybe someone famous or well known – I’m not sure. The artist is Edward A. Kretschman (1849-1923) of Philidelphia and it is signed and dated 1876. There is also a foundry mark – Miller & Krips , Founders, Philadelphia.
Very crisp detail in the bronze – especially the hair. Beautiful quality.
Both signature and foundry mark are located under the shoulder of the 3 dimensional plaque.
Measures: 23 1/2 inches high x 19 1/2 inches wide
