VINTAGE CAPODIMONTE PORCELAIN STATUE VENUS ITALICA 1950s PEDESTAL BASE
Offered here is a marvelous 1950s porcelain statue from the Italian firm of Capodimonte. This stunning and lustrous work is a reproduction copy of the famous statue Venus Italica by the Italian Neo-Classical sculptor Antonio Canova (1757-1822).
Canova's model for the original was Paolina Borghese (Napoleon's sister). Statue stands 23 1/2" T while the pedestal stands 38 1/4" T for a total of 61 3/4" T, or a little over 5' high. The pedestal is made up of three pieces that are held together by a long metal rod and a gold metal disc (the disc sits in a groove on the upper portion of the pedestal and the statue rests on it). Marked on the base's bottom in gold "Capodimonte Italy 114/2857".
The piece is in excellent condition with no discernible defects other seven very small chips along the upper edge of the base's outer, upper edge, two hairline cracks to the outer edge of the upper portion of the pedestal (each hairline is about 3 inches long, on opposite sides and do not affect the structural integrity of the piece), one chip to the base of the statue's upper, outer edge and one chip to an edge of the post. Don't let these minor issue's deter you, the piece is beautiful.
Item will be shipped in four seperate boxes.
