Frederick William MacMonnies (American, 1863-1937) bronze sculpture, "Bacchante and Infant Faun", signed and dated F. Macmonnies 1894 on base, with medallion stamped Jaboeuf & Rouard / Fondeurs a Paris 10 & 12 / R. De L'asile Poplincourt , 34"H x 10" diameter. Note: MacMonnies cast the original "Bacchante with Infant Faun" in 1893-1894 as a life sized bronze. It was intended for the courtyard of the Boston Public Library, but Bostonians protested the sculpture's "drunken indecency". It was eventually accepted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it was displayed for many years in the Great Hall with other examples of modern sculpture.
