This is a Large 24 inch tall original bronze statue of David after the marble by Gian Bernini 1598-1680. This seems to be quite a scarce statue in bronze. We could find no auction records for this figure and could only find a Couple pictured that did not have the eagle at the base. We believe this was done in the 1800'S in Naples (Napoli) by the Fonderia Sommer or Chiurazzi. This bronze is in excellent condition and has a great patina. The only flaw we could see is a thin line at the front of the ankle as per our picture. It does not go Thru the leg and we think it must have Happened during the casting process. A really great large and dramatic figure to add to your collection. It weighs about 50 pounds.
