Such figures barely get sold. This one comes from the foundrry Marinelli in Florence and was made by the artist Giovanni Cappelletti (1889.1964). Lots of objects in Rome come from this famous foundry. Here it's a bronze sculpture of the highest quality and most beautiful expression. It used to stay in a villa for about 30 years before it got re-patinated in a Swiss art foundry. Now the figure is placed in a town close to Zurich.
