It is made by the artist Franz Iffland, the piece has the artist's signature and Paris inscribed on the underside of the chair.
This is a vintage copy of the original which was made about 1890. This fine sculpture exudes joy and shows motion from every angle. It depicts the innocent joys of life simply as we know it. As the little girl sits in her chair, she playfully starts a game of peek-a-boo with her precious kitty.
The chair itself is plain with no intricate details, this give more attention to the main subject, the girl and her cat. Iffland truly masters motion with the creases in the little girls dress and her hair flying back with wild fun. She wears a contagious smile and gives the vibe of simple childhood happiness. This piece is a delightful sculpture that will add a touch of innocence and fun to your office or home.
