GRAND TOUR MARBLE BUST OF APOLLO BELVEDERE
Italian circa late 19th century, over an associated pedestal
Item # 803PLZ13Z 


This is a very nice late 19th century sculpture of Apollo Belvedere after the original held in the Vatican Museum.  It is likely a product of the Grand Tour movement in Italy and is beautifully proportioned.  The detailing in the hair, the crisp outlining of his eyes and strong jaw and muscular structure is noteworthy.  A steel pin projects from the squared plinth integral to the sculpture, allowing it to easily drop into and spin freely in the breche d’alep stone pedestal; this is surrounded by a bronze embossed rim over a Belgian black marble footer.  This base is of the same period as the sculpture, but is simply associated and not original to the bust.

Measurements:  14 W x approx. 5 D x 16 H (figure only); base 9” diameter x 8 1/8” H; 24 1/4” H total

Condition Report:
Light chips to marble edges throughout, abrasion to proper right breast, discoloration and grime to old marble surface.  Pedestal is not original but is of the period.
