A. L. Barye Medallion
A.L. Barye
Inscribed on Medallion, "A.L. Barye, Sculpteur, Membre, de L'institut, 1796-1875." Typed on a card that was inside the black leather case, "To commemorate the greatest "animalist" of modern times-perhaps of all time-Patey designed this medal. Barye's firm face is on one side, the famous Lion Crushing the Serpent on the other, accompanied by the tools of a sculptor and the palm, which indicates that Barye before he died was elected a Member of the French Institute." The famous Barye bronze on the reverse side shows the signature and date, "BARYE 1832".
