Exquisite antique nude bronze ballerina inscribed Prof Poertzel. She is beautifully sculptured with perfect proportions, gorgeous face, and wonderful animation as she stands on one toe dancing. She measures 11 inches high including her original marble base. Excluding the base she measures 8 inches high. Her hands are extended away from her body and they measures 4-1/4 inches from hand to hand. Weight 3 lbs. The bronze has a lovely light golden brown patina and is in excellent condition. Guaranteed to please the most particular collector or connoisseur. Bronzes of this quality rarely come to the market. I have decided its time to share my collection with the rest of the world. We are only caretakers for our precious art objects, paintings, bronzes and antiques. I feel I have done my best to preserve the beauty and enjoyment that collecting antique bronze sculptures has given me. Bronzes you will be seeing listed here on Ebay and my website are the result of 45 years of searching the world for the finest quality antique bronze sculptures available. To say that building my collection was a labor of love is an understatement. It is my passion. Now on my next journey through life I will have the opportunity through the internet to share the wonders of 45 years collecting and searching the world to obtain the finest art objects I could find that appealed to me to add to the collection.
