Christopher Columbus (1451-1506)
Emile Picault (French 1833-1915) (French 1840-1916)
Very well done work of art with beautiful details and signed E Picault on base. Also stamped on the back is Pinedo, possibly for Emile Pinedo (French 1840-1916), also known from his historical sculptures. This bronze perhaps could have been made for the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 or the 1900 Paris Exposition.
