"Very Large Regule : "drinker At The Gargoulette""I like to buy rules when they are large and well chiseled and patinated because for a tiny part of its bronze equivalent, we have spectacular pieces that play the game well ... As my children say, " it does it" ! Here, this statue measures approximately 79 cm with its base, 71 cm alone !
A drinker refreshes himself by drinking from a dish which keeps its contents very fresh. He is probably a Spanish coachman: although his head is protected by a scarf, he has his hat and his whip at his feet. I have not seen a signature or a foundry mark: it might be necessary to separate it from its base to check, but since it is original, in wood covered with its old damaged velvet in places, I do not didn't have the heart to do it.
