This wonderful figurine by one of the most notable Italian sculptors, A. Borsato, stands 10 1/2".

He seems to have a very satisfied expression seeing as how his basket is overflowing with a recent catch!

Antonio Borsato sadly died in 1982 in a car accident. By then he had already achieved a prominent place in the art world of the 20th century Capodimonte community. His work is proudly displayed in the Vatican as well as in many museums and in private collections. All of his pieces are sculpted in the round, and each one hand-painted differently from others of the same mold. Apparently, Borsato's pieces were never put into mass production and each was handpainted and is thus a unique representation of his original sculpture.

His works are widely represented in the book, "Capodimonte Collectibles" published in 1990.

This item is in excellent condition - no chips, cracks, or repairs. As you will see in the photos though, there is substantial aging of the painted surface. Gives it an even better vintage appearance!

This piece is valued at $750.00 but is being offered here for much less. It's a great price to enable you to own this great artist's work at a bargain basement price!
