EAGLE STATUE 14-inch tall Santini "Lord of the Skies" on a Black Base VTG from ITALY
Vintage A. Santini Eagle Carrara Marble Sculpture on a black marble base. Title: "The Lord of the Skies." The statue and marble base is in excellent condition; no chips or scratches. It was given as a retirement gift and has a thin engraved brass plaque on the front of the marble base. I recommend either removing the plaque or gluing on a fresh plaque over it to personalize it for your use. I have blacked out the original recipient's name from the plaque in the photos. The eagle, which sits on a gorgeous black, white-veined marble base, is 14" tall and is about 20" at its widest point. The base measures 4.75" x 3.5" x 4". The whole ensemble weighs a hefty 13 lbs/27 kgs. Made in Italy. Signature can be seen at the foot of the statue and there is an authentic Santini label on the bottom of the base. This is a stunning, large attacking eagle statue, elegantly casted by the world renown Amilcare Santini (born 1910, died 1975). His signature is casted in the rear, the studio label is moderately worn and is on the very base. The sculpture is made of a compound of bonded Carrara Marble, Alabaster and resin that was poured into a mold and then hand-finished. It dates back to around 1970. The detail is crazy exquisite (see attached pictures). This Would Make a Great Addition to Any Home or Man-Cave. What a gift! EXCELLENT CONDITION. NO CRACKS, scratches or noticeable defects. Retailed new at $349 USD.
