Stunning 18th Century Lifesize Marble Bust of Apollo

About

Hand-carved from marble after the Apollo Belvedere and dating to the late 18th century, this exquisite life-sized bust is in very good antique condition, with only a very old and weathered repair to the nose. It will make a perfect addition to your library or center hall table or in a prominent place in your garden, raised up on a pedestal or as the centerpiece on a large table (the pedestal shown in the last three photos has been sold). Please note that this piece has minor chips and nicks commensurate with age and use and sports a weathered and sugared surface. It weighs about 300-350 lbs and will require crating for shipment.
