Large antique 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. A decorators dream, she measures a little over 18" high x 15" wide at the base. Circa 1880-90. Another bust from the same mold was featured in Architectural Digest in Michael Sheen's home, however that piece had lost all its paint and only the white gesso remained.
