18th Century Terracotta of the Dauphin of France

A lovely period 18th century bust of the child Louis-Auguste de France, Duc de Berry (later Louis XVI) with incised signature C.GIR, 1773. This delightful small bust is presented on its original marble socle. Probably modelled loosely on the celebrated portrait of the Dauphin by Jean-Martial Fredou (1710-1795).
