Bronze cast figures are cast and signed “L & F Moreau”. L&F Moreau were brothers best known for highly ornate clocks in both bronze and spelter. The L stands for Louis Auguste (1855-1919), known for bronzes and metal sculptures. The F stands for Hippolyte Francois (1857-1930), a painter and sculptor.
