Charles Cumberworth (1811 – 1852)

Signed to base. Born at Verdun, Cumberworth enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1829 and exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1833-1848. The majority of his output was women and children as well as allegorical figures. Susse Frères, were the sole foundry Cumberworth used after 1837. The foundry continues today.

Cumberworth would have licenced the foundry to produce and sell the statues, however the genuine pieces authorised by the artist reveal the foundry mark to the base. These bronzes are stamped Daubree for Alfred Daubree.

Alfred Daubree was a dealer of bronzes and jewellery who established his business in the 1850’s at 85 de la rue Montmartre. He acted as agent for Charles Cumberworth, Louis Menessier, Leopold Kampf, Barye et Cie, and Christophe Fratin.
