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

About

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.
