Plaster Replica Fresco Greek Wall Plaque ~apollo By Ergani Athena Chalkware 7.5":
style="text-decoration:none" height="23px" valign="middle" face="arial" Plaster Replica of Ancient Greek Fresco ♦♦ Fine Chalkware Plaque by Ergani-Athena ♦Figure is God APOLLO7.5" Wide[ 18 cm ]
♦ Detailed and nicely Stylized Work of Art - Vintage 1960's - 1970's we guess.♦ Greek Letters spell out "Apollo" in greek. He is playing the lyre.♦ Maker's Seal (label) embossed in foil on the reverse -- Text: "Ergani Athena Copy Hand Made Greece"♦ The sculpture is in the style of "BAS RELIEF" - a sculpture that comes out from the flat plane only a little.It's only 13/4" Front to Back at the thickest part.♦There are various texture finishes molded into different portions of the work -- the hair and olive wreath, and the detail around the garment are particularly nice.♦ Paint in good condition - probably painted 'on top' of the plaster rather than the 'al fresco' method of putting pigment directly IN the wet plaster (which was how the originals were made). All subdued colors, as was typical of the originals.♦ The plaque measures about 7.5" wide x 6.75" tall. Good steel hanging loop embedded into the plaster.♦ The sculpture weighs in around 2 Pounds 1 Ounces (just under 1 kilo) -- shipping weight will be 4 pounds.
PROVENANCE: This sculpture is from a collection of vintage sculptures and wall plaques being liquidated. They are from a well-traveled retired lawyer & family. The collection includes many other wood sculptures of similar appearance and age (1960's to 1970's). See our other listings to see if any remain for sale.NOTE: we had a matching "ATHENA" listed at the same time - this may or may not still be available.
CONDITION: 9.75 out of 10: EXCELLENT ! Both the substance of the molding + the texture finishes and paint are SUPER fine! Superior art work on the ORIGINAL FRESCO.The finish is good - paint intentionally understated on the dull side. No splits, cracks or breakage ... no soil.Overall it's really handsome - You'll love him, we guarantee it !!
