Empire patinated bronze sculpture of a Roman lady, presumably Agrippina the Younger. On a bronze plinth with gilded mascaron, rim and base.
Very fine cast statue with a dark brown patina on a beautiful Empire base.
Although this figure is not directly attributable to a statue from Roman antiquity, it shows simularities to statues of Agrippina as in the collection of Lateran in Rome (now Vatican Museum) and in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence. Agrippina Minor was the sister of Emperor Caligula and mother of Emperor Nero.
