Code 116-2 Lifesize Antique Terra Cotta Statue of a Woman
This European antique, parcel paint, terra cotta statue depicts a woman carrying a Greek vase with base relief figures on it. She has the front of her long dress draped into her left hand as she steps down from a foliate ledge. Her dress is decorated with strips of what looks like crocheted floral motifs and her sandals are straps wrapped around her feet and legs. Her expression is one of serenity as she walks down a path. This antique terra cotta statue has beautiful old layers of parcel paint in colors of teal, brown, beige, grey and more. Dimensions of base: 20 1/2 wide x 18 deep. There is what we believe to be an inventory or artist’s number on the back (1982 or possibly 1782)
CONDITION: Good antique condition with several old restorations, touch ups to paint, cracks and chips. Vase is slightly loose in hand, but stable and not needing repair. See photos..
H=69 1/8, Max Width=26 1/2, Max Depth=23 1/2. Base/"Footprint"= 18 wide x 20 1/2 inches deep
