Q I’d like some information about the maker of a bronze statue of a fox marked ”Chemin.” The letter ”N” is backwards. Does this increase the value?

A Your bronze fox was made by French sculptor Joseph Victor Chemin (1825-1901). He was known for his animal sculptures. The backwards ”N” is part of his mark. It isn’t a mistake and does not add value. An 8-inch long bronze animal by Chemin was estimated at $300 in a Midwest auction.
