Here is Emile Coriolan Hippolyte Guillemin French (1841-1907) Terracotta Bust of a Young Girl. Inscribed E. Guillemin and impressed with Quai Jemmapes 6. This beautiful French sculpture of a young girl dressed in Victorian bonnet with lovely antique hear style is realistically molded with great detail.
