This is an old antique Victorian era 19th Century artist signed but I cant read it beautiful hand carved bust od a young lady from fabulous estate. It is 17" tall by 8" by 8 1/2 and weighs 29 1/2 pounds. She has beautiful detail and her face is magnificent. There is a 2 1/2 vine missing on left bottom base edge. There is a hard to spot faint 6 1/2 line on left side of her hair running horizontal.
There is a tiny nick on her left shoulder. I took a closeup of the signature and maybe somebody more familiar with statues will know who it is.
This is stunning in person and displays beautifully on a marble pedestal or marble top table.
