What does this mean?

Dear Diane,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a cold painted plaster bust with unknown measurements. The bust depicts the French wrestler Maurice Tillet (1903-1954) who was known with his artist or wrestler name "The French Angel" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_French_Angel). The bust is signed and titled "Maurice Tillet - The Angel". The signature reads as L. A. Linck and the bits are dated 1951. Sadly no further information regarding the biography of this artist is mentioned in reference books or similar databases except that the first name is Louis.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 200 to 400 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
