Large & Fine Vintage Italian Alabaster Figurine Bust; Sculpture By A Giannelli:
LARGE Beautifully Modelled Vintage Italian Alabaster Bust Signed A. Giannelli
PLEASE SEE ALL MY PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH ALSO FORM PART OF MY ITEM DESCRIPTION
Thisa beautiful Italian alabaster bust by A. Giannelli - probably dating to the 1970s.
It takes the form of a beautiful Victorian lady and stands on a shiny white marble plinth.
These figures were made to resemble earlier Parian examples - and it of really nice quality with exceptional modelling and details - I have taken a lot of photographs of her in the round for your inspection.
This piece is signed on her sholder to the back A. Giannelli, and comes from the Egregia Factory in Volterra in Italy. The pieces that this factory produces are made from "recomposed stone" - this is a mixture of alabaster and marble powder - bound with a resin. This results in the creation of lovely detailed works - which all have the look, fell and weight of antique alabasters - of course without their high prices!
A great decorative piece for your antique interior - it certainly looks like a much older, antique piece.
My bust is in excellent condition with no damages of any kind to the figure - there is a tiny brown stain to the bottom of the plinth (which you can see in my photographs) -
Great starting price for this lovely decorative figurine - and a nice large size to - measuring a total height of 9 1/2 inches (24 cm). The weight is 1.5 kg and all packed up it would be about £10 to post to you in the UK.
Standard airmail to Europe would probably be about £15.
