The sculpture is perhaps his most famous work titled "Neapolitan Dancer", and it has an incised Delafontaine foundry mark on the base. The piece does not bear the artist's signature, as it was often issued as a pair, where the other one was signed. The sculpture measures 17 tall, and is made of solid bronze. 1870, and was the approved fondeur of the artist. The sculpture was cast in pieces (as are all quality bronzes of this era). One of the cast arms apparently detached and was reattached (as shown in the last photos). There is a 1/16th seam at this area. There is some scratching to the patina throughout, but the piece presents well, is complete, and free of dents or dings.
