A known royal supplier at the Court of His Imperial Majesty, Chopin was a French-Russian caster, famed for his splendid busts of Russian rulers. His story with busts began in 1840 with the discovery of marble busts by the Italian sculptor, A.Penna. These busts intrigued Chopin, motivating him to design a series of busts, immortalizing Russia's rulers. His remarkable series featuring 63 busts was well-received at an exhibition nine years later, further establishing his commendable skill and popularity.

This handpicked piece brings you a chance to own a fragment of history meticulously crafted by the hands of the 'Bronze Magician' himself.
