Large 19th C terracotta sculpture in the Italian Renaissance style of a beautiful woman. All original with no repairs or touch-ups, rarely do you find our of these pieces with the paint and gold gilt intact. This piece has just been lightly dusted with a soft brush for the past 25 years. An decorators dream, this very impressive bust measures a little over 18" high x 15" wide at the base. Circa 1880-90.
