This is a large and heavy bust (32cm wide across the shoulders, 53cm high, 20cm deep and weighs in at 19kg), probably by Paris makers Citti Freres and circa 1890's. It looks like it was designed for outdoor use, and that is how it has been used in the past judging by the wonderful calcite patina it has developed, but it does look superb indoors too (these photos are on my window cill at home).Condition is good, no losses anywhere, just age related wear from being outdoors for a very long time, see images for detail. There are a couple of holes around the underside of the nose, (see images) I believe these are defects from the original casting/firing not later damage, they don't appear to be chips. She is in original condition as far as I can tell.
