Hand-carved in the abstract method inspired by Rodin, this charming Antique Carved Wood Statue of famed French Cartoon Heroine Becassine will make an interesting conversation piece indeed!  The character first appeared in the French press around 1905 and grew in popularity, so much so that an independent movie was released in 2014.  Described as a cross between Mary Poppins and Mr. Bean, she is the focus of many a European's fond memories of childhood, and has been rendered here coming home from market dressed in her very modest Breton garments.
Circa early1900s
