French Cast Bronze 19th Century Rooster Sculpture with Wings Extended Backwards

A French bronze sculpture from the 19th century depicting a rooster standing on a textured ground, his wings extended. Created during the 19th century, this bronze sculpture depicts the French national emblem, the rooster. The proud animal is standing straight on his legs, his wings extended backwards. His beak partially opened reveals that he is on alert, probably defending his territory. His talons are firmly planted on a textured ground while the ensemble is resting on a rectangular base with rais-de-cœur motifs. With its skillful depiction and dark golden patina, this French bronze rooster sculpture from the 19th century will make for a lovely addition to any home, perhaps displayed on the top of a chest of drawers, of a side table or a credenza.
