Offered for sale is a charming 19th century Italian hand carved marble bust of a young girl wearing a knitted skull cap. The features are nicely detailed and it is indistinctly signed on the back. The bust is mounted to a squared plinth base. The expression on the face of the child is so poignant you want to reach out and hug her. This is why we have always loved the Italian carved stone figures, they seem to have a life and passion of their own.
The figure is in excellent condition with nice coloration.
Size: 14 1/2" Height, 9" Width at shoulders.
