I'm trying to identify the maker of these busts, or at least to find a comparable. So far no luck on eBay, or searching on google, including image search looking for a visual match.
The busts are solid metal. I'm thinking polished brass, but perhaps bronze? George VI is 7 inches high and weighs 5 pounds 5 ounces. Edward VIII is slightly shorter, measuring 6-3/8 inches high. It weighs 4 pounds 8 ounces.
There is nothing to identify the manufacturer, but both have the number 6398 on the undersides of their base. The number looks hand marked, and is constructed from a series of "dot" impressions in the metal. No hidden hallmarks or anything of that nature.
Any help would be appreciated!
I'm trying to find out if there is a way to replace a small amount of missing gold off a porcelain teapot. Is there a paint of something I could try?
Can anyone read who the artist is? It looks like the work of Huang Zhou but I can't verify the seal.
Some.letters have come off, all it has now is ...angria...
Can anyone help shed some light on this wooden mask? I thought it was interesting but don't have a clue as to the age, country of origin, etc. Thank you.
I've been told this was a saddle attachment to hold a flag or field gear case for utencils. Does anyone know?
