  • Help needed please

    Hi everyone.
    Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place, but wasn't sure where to ask for help.
    I've had this carving in the enclosed photo for a few years now, but I've never had any info on it, and was hoping that someone on this forum might be able to help.
    I know it was carved in France, because its carved into the back, but that's all I know. I'm keen to identify the artist though, if you look at the image, you will see the marking at the bottom right.
    I just have a feeling that theres something about this piece.
    Thanks in advance for any help you may have.

    Looks to be based on the widely cloned and sold in print painting by Harry Haerendel.

      Hi Ed, and thanks for that bit of info.
      That painting is almost identical, even down to the joint in the pipe, so I'd say you're bang on with that.
      The second image you gave me wont load.

        So my thought is as nice this piece is, famous artist aren’t usually cloning other artist work. But I’ve been wrong before. I think your next step could be a search for French art galleries, then email them to see if the Signature is known to them. MTCW

          Thanks again, I'll do what I can to try and find more info.
          I've managed to find the name of the fisherman, but that hasn't led me anywhere just yet. Its Dorus Rijkers, he was a German sea captain.

            I don't know the answer, but I sure like it, I may have to try to clone it myself

              What is the material and finish? The photo makes it look like bronze.

                  Hi Pallin
                  Its some sort of wood my friend.
                  I've had it for years, and going by what I've read about this type of work, it sounds like it's very old.
                  I'd love to be able to value it, but I guess I need to find out more about it first.

                      Don't know if this helps, but I did find a similar signature on this sight, look under f on about page 3 or 4 (don't remember) but a person has to log on to get details and I didn't want to do that. http://www.artistssignatures.com/monograms.php?page=0

                            Hi Pete

                            I'm afraid I cant help with identifying the carver but wow what a great carving!

                            Its such a great piece of work, could you give us the dimensions or perhaps a photo from the side angle?

                            The artist has created so much depth to this piece.

                            Kind regards
                            David
