    Hello guys I have been offered this Adolf Hitler bust of a fairly decent size. It seems to be detailed and well-proportioned I figured it would be best to have a couple other people look at it as well. I appreciate any questions or comments. It looks like a nice piece it looks a little shiny as well a little bit glossy

    Seller states it was a vet estate find. I do not see any bad pitting marks that you would see on a sand cast replica. But there is no makers mark

    Hey Chuck as you said it has a lot of gloss, and that gives it a rather irregular appearance. I would suggest you ask the seller for pictures in a better light and without flash. JMO
    Best regards.

    The piece is IMO promising. It's a rather good likeness of AH and well made. It s not a piece that's refined enough to be considered artist quality but one I think could of possibly been made for public purchase. I think loosely based off this example being offered by TR ARTS.COM. Best regards.

    I've been taught that original Pre WWII bronze busts are attached to the plinth by a square nut, not an hexagonal nut like the one shown on the picture.

    Even if that were true which im not convinced it is , you cant judge any bust by how its attached to its base, the nut could be original and if not could have been changed at any time in the last 70/80 years for reasons we would never know.

    Looks like cast brass and not bronze, which I would think would be a red flag. Does it have a laquer coating? No doubt there were cheaper quality busts produced, and while the likeness is reasonable, my gut feeling is "Indian repro".

    I may well be wrong but those were my thoughts exactly. Appears to be a cheap cast example.
