c.9" x 4" x 3", bronze
ex. collection Phyllis Pray Bober, my Mother, a noted art historian
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a rare bronze by Ahron Ben-Shmuel (1903-1984), dated 1932. The artist received basic training from a monument carver and developped his own style. One of his sculptures is in the Smithonian American Art Museum. The estimate is based on very few auction results. A serious collector might be willing to pay more than the high estimate.
