    Bronze - The vine 

    I’ve been wanting to start a bronze Art Nouveau collection and came across this signed lovely peace. I have a several porcelain peace but this would be my first bronze The same un signed bronze went for some £70 on eBay with others still up for auction. But I’m looking for a bargain and a good investment but know very little about bronze and more to the point how to make sure it’s a good one! It seems to make sense to look for signed, dates and numbered works but this only has foundry mark and signature At £150 what’s would your advice be?
