This most impressive sculpture depicts a semi naked blacksmith standing by a large anvil with a sledgehammer in one hand and a smaller hammer resting next to him on the anvil. He is dressed in only a belt and fur apron and stands proudly showing his muscular physique. The naturalistic base is stepped and moulded and has a lower section decorated with a garland of flowers. Below there is a plain section which is mounted with a label entitled le travail and the artist's name C.H Perron Charles Theodore Perron, French 1862 -1934. The statue is further mounted onto a moulded green figured marble base. This high quality cast spelter figure has fine detail and is finished with plated bronze which has a mid brown patinated finish and looks identical to bronze.
