What does this mean?

Hello John,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be a bronze sculpture with a gold patina. The work depicts an abstract form, possible female and measures approximately 8 inches tall. The object does appear to resemble a work by Jean Arp (French, 1886-1966) titled "Demeter." However, examples of that work are signed, numbered, and include a foundry seal. An authentic example of Arp's "Demeter" recently sold at auction for a result of $1,512,500.

Due to the lack of signature or foundry seal, I cannot attribute the presented item to Jean Arp. I do suggest you reach out for authentication if you believe the object is an authentic work. There are a flood of object resembling Arp's works and replicas after the artist on the market.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable decorative objects in the style of Arp. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care
