This is a splendid antique Italian Florentine alabaster sculpture of a young sweetheart on a bench, entitled Wistfulness and circa 1880 in date.
This wonderful antique sculpture is made from stunning white and red alabaster and grey white marble. It depicts a charming young lady sitting on a bench, resting her head in one hand with the other hand on the seat.
Her curly hair is gently worn tied back from the face and she wears a classic costume with her bare feet in sight. She is in a contemplative state, thinking carefully about something.
The bench supports feature wonderful caryatids terminating in attractive paw feet.
The attention to detail throughout this piece is second to none.
In really excellent condition, with no chips or marks, please see photos for confirmation.
