The bust is raised on a multicolored stone plinth. At first, we thought this bust was of General Lafayette, but researching the statue, it turns out to be General Washington. Winterthur Museum in Delaware has this same Washington bust in bronze. The bronze bust dates to the 1780s, but this sevres bust probably dates to the 1820s but could be earlier.
