An Alabaster Figural Group, The Three Graces

An Alabaster Figural Group, The Three Graces, Fitted as a Lamp

This piece is made after the model by Antoino Canova’s Venus and the Graces Dancing in the Presence of Mars. Each figure is lightly draped in a toga with meticulous folds which move as if they are dancing. The central figure has a laurel wreath being held over her head by the women that flank her. The figures are supported by an oval base. The piece is not signed and is not marked with a country of origin however it probably was made in Italy.

Size: 13 ˝” high (figure not including socket) 9” wide 4 ˝” deep

Condition: Excellent, possible small flake on figure far right near base and on edge of skirt for figure on far left
