Ancient Roman Marble Architrave with Two Heads

$35,000Asking Price

About

Long and slender architectural entablature carved in relief with two idealized heads with centrally parted wavy hair, the plump faces with large almond-shaped eyes, the heads overlaying and flanking a band of meandering ivy above a deep-cut row of egg-and-dart with a band of bead-and-reel beneath. Ex Asheroffe Collection, UK, formed between 1935-1945. A rare and choice remnant of antiquity that should be in an important collection.
