Our opinion :

These small bronze busts were intended to be offered, several copies are known, with or without bronze column.
We can cite a copy offered by the king to the painter Jean-Jacques Bachelier (1714-1789) and sold on June 30, 2016 at Sotheby’s, old Steinitz collection lot 102: $ 15,000.
Another copy from the Charles Wrightsman collection, height 24 cm, Sothebys New York sale April 28, 2010 lot 6: $ 10,600.
It should be noted that other very close but earthenware copies of Lunéville are also known, including one at the Museum of Philadelphia.
