This is a splendid antique Italian carved alabaster sculpture of a figural group titled 'The Artist's Muse' by P. Emilio Fiaschi (Italian, 1858-1941), circa 1890 in date.
This finely carved sculpture depicts a beautiful young couple modelled as a young artist in Renaissance dress holding a palette and leaning over a maiden seated in a Savonarola chair with paw feet.
The sculpture is raised on an integral base, and is signed E. Fiaschi to the rear.
The craftsmanship is second to none throughout all aspects of this artwork.
In really excellent condition, with no chips, marks, or signs of damage. Please see photos for confirmation.
