CA1078 Grand Tour Patinated Bronze of Michelangelo's David
Rare example of a Grand Tour patinated bronze of Michelangelo's famous sculpture of David now in Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze. Italian, possibly Florentine. What makes this version interesting and rare is the totally original typically Neapolitan style base, I have not seen another like this in 30 years of collecting. Good example, late 18th/early 19th century.
