    Hey Chris,
    plasters are very undervalued to admass!
    And thise while plasters generally stand closer to the original artist.
    Bronzes are made by bronze casters, mostly in different workplace by different people.
    Plasters generaly are study's, samples or models to be presented to the client.
    Not saying thise is, but it might!
    A great extra is the coloring that was hand done, also probably by the same artist.

    I got it for 20€ at a sales room!;-)
    cheers
