Museum quality,  extremely uncommon and an absolute masterpiece in modelling and construction.   Sometimes referred to as a slave girl, this figure is most likely to be Victor Hugo's 'Cosette' from Le Mesurables and would have been one of Coalbrookdales first sculptural pieces.  Mostly they were cast in Iron but this one is Bronze.  .  Each individual piece has the lozenge date stamp.  It feature an elaborate scrolling foliage frame with vine entwined hoops for walking canes and umbrella's and 7 lion head coat hooks.  The whole piece is extremely heavy.
