Grand Tour Souvenir Table-Top Bronze "Mercury" after the Antique

About

A 19th century bronze figure of the seated Mercury after the antique, being a souvenir of the Grand Tour of Europe. It has crisp lines and clean casting, a pleasing black patina and fine workmanship. It is unsigned but is probably from Naples, and it lacks its original felt pad on the bottom as seen in the last photograph. It was made to stand free of a base, as seen here. It is a fine addition to any desk, bookcase, mantel or library table.
