Art Nouveau Spelter Statue of Ironworker continues the traditions established during the previous Belle Epoque period of celebrating the working man, albeit with what was considered then a "modern" flair.  The Art Nouveau period was a brief style trend that appeared roughly between 1890 and 1910, and although internationally practiced was undoubtedly a French original.  The style in this piece is most evident in the intriguing design of the pediment upon which the figure is placed, featuring design elements unique to the Art Nouveau movement.  A patinaed bronze finish was applied to the spelter for visual appeal, enhancing the appearance of the main figure who is posed next to his anvil with hammer in hand, ready for the next red-hot ingot to shape.
