Jean François Théodore Gechter 1796-1844. Bronze figure of St. John the Evangelist with his symbol of the Eagle. Signed 'GECHTER scptr'. There is a late nineteenth century version with an oval base and a foundry mark. This has no foundry mark and as Jean Gechter made and signed the moulds for his bronzes as well as overseeing the casting, this is probably an original circa 1835 century figure from his atelier.
