Search for autenticity bronze statue



i’m the owner of this beautiful bronze statue about early 20th century.

In 2 different part i found the sign of P.L. Peyranne see attachment (Pierre Louis Peyranne (france 1883-1953). Pierre Louis Peyranne, a pupil of Injalbert and H. Lemaire, exhibited in Paris at the Salon des Artistes Francais, where he was awarded an honourable mention in 1909, became a member hors concours, and won a gold medal in 1921.).

How could I understand if it’s original? and if it’s so what is the real value of this item?

Thanks for your help

  1. Welcome to the forum!

    Bronze statues are not within my area of expertise, nor is the style of this statue.
    But it seems odd that the name is scratched into the cold metal, even in two attempts. It doesn’t look right. Having the initials after the surname is also peculiar for a French artist.

    The only auctioned statue by Peyranne I can find is this “Thaïs”:
    which is signed L. Peyranne.

    My best advice is to present your statue to an auction house with the proper expertise. Maybe you can also learn something from this article about bronze imitations (I did!):
