Emblazoned with the signature 'F.CHOPIN' and a unique stamp reading 'M.F. 1868 FOR 10 YEARS', it boasts an authenticity that is beyond compare. In addition, a carefully inscribed 'THEODORE' on its base further enhances its mysterious allure. Crafted in St. Petersburg’s renowned F. Chopin factory, the bust is an embodiment of Russian history and a testament to its remarkable tsar.

Its creator, Felix Chopin (1813-1892), was known as the 'bronze magician' for his ability to bring life to sculptures. A French and Russian caster, and official supplier to the Court of His Imperial Majesty, Chopin holds a revered place in the art world. He was renowned for his series of busts of Russian rulers, which started from his fascination with marble busts created by Italian sculptor A. Penna. Despite Penna's busts held limited resemblance to the real historical figures, thanks to never visiting Russia, the idea inspired Chopin to create his series of 63 full-sized busts, later presented in smaller, cabinet-friendly versions as well.

As a proud retriever of the F. Chopin Model 1868, you will own a part of Russian history encapsulated in a stunning piece of art. This captivating display of historical artistry is an ideal decoration piece for history enthusiasts, art lovers, and those with a penchant for timeless elegance.
