Dante Alighieri, Spelter Sculpture, Art Nouveau, as-is
Priced in Mexican Pesos. This sculpture of Dante Alighieri, the Italian poet was cast in spelter, a soft white metal that was used in the late 19th C. and onwards in order to supply the ordinary man with copies of the great artworks at an economical price. This maintains a wonderful patina .. a real 'antique bronze' look. This was made around 1900 and has some minor damage to the lower section on the backside (the metal has developed some holes and a crack apparently from an impact like a fall). I have provided photos of that damage. This measures 10 1/2" tall. Most likely it once sat upon a base of some kind.
