Artist Emile Picault’s sculptures were so frequently reproduced that originals were given a foundry mark and a hole was drilled beneath the seal to indicate they were genuine. His pieces were often inscribed with a Latin or French motto as well. He had enormous commercial success during his life, and his works were cast by major French firms Susse Freres and Houdebine.
