Seller: artancientltd (9,497) 99.2%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391620655436 A beautiful and well provenanced ancient Roman bronze figure of the god of love, Cupid cradling a goose, dating to approximately 200 AD. The exquisitely modeled bronze depicting the upper part of the winged youth, shown leaning forwards as if in flight. He clutches a goose to his chest with both hands, the creature's head rising to touch his chin. Cupid's spread wings are carefully incised, his hair is well rendered, the curly locks falling to the side. The silvered eyes stare out of the piece, creating a wonderful aesthetic. An incredible, graceful composition. The back of the piece is curved, which together with the two cylindrical sockets at the top suggest that it was attached to a vessel in ancient times, perhaps with two candles emerging from either side. Height: 3 1/4 inches. Height mounted: 5 3/4 inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored. Provenance: Ex. Haggin Museum, California. Ex. Bruce Kamerling collection. Ex. Malter galleries, XLV 28/5/1991 lot. 902. Ex. Sotheby's London May 1988 Lot 234. Authenticity All items are unconditionally guaranteed to be Authentic as described.
