Hello, just curious if anyone has ever seen this sculpture before, or if
anyone has seen it in person (and where) ?


here is the description:

Description: Signed Leon Pilet on the base with a nice patina, high relief depiction of the famous French science fiction author Jules Verne, debonairly dressed, gesturing with one hand while leaning against several books a top a pedestal in the midst of a passionate speech or a toast amongst his many inner circle friends of the day.  Size: 34 inches height.   Leon Pilet (1830-1916) (some books have him listed as Pillet) is a listed French sculptor. This might possibly be one of the largest works Pilet ever did.
