Group of Three Bronze Grand Tour Pieces Copied from Antique Lamp, Urn & Tazza


This set of three decorative, Roman bronze grand tour pieces, all copies of antique designs, consists of a handsome group of highly detailed, heavy bronze objects, with a very similar dark patina. The lamp, designed with a curving neck that transforms into a horse's head, from which a bell shaped cover is hung, is a miniature version of an early Roman, Pompeiian lamp. It is 4" H. x 5" long. The tazza, a shallow drinking cup whose handles are in the shape of winged heads (probably representing Mercury), has a rougher finish, and may be older, quite possibly from an excavation rather than being an object made for the Grand Tour. It's 4" H. x 7" wide. The urn, 4-1/2" H. and 4" in diameter, is an elegantly detailed miniature with a laurel wreath around the rim, and a high level of detail around the periphery of the urn itself. All three are quite heavy for their size, highly detailed, beautifully finished, and they make a particularly evocative group.


  • Condition
    Excellent. These pieces have enough wear to demonstrate their age, but are otherwise in excellent condition. The tazza may in fact be considerably older, and it is in scale with actual funerary objects from the period. .
  • Wear
    Wear consistent with age and use.

    H 4 in. x W 7 in. x D 4 in.
