A Venetian bronze bust of a cherub in the manner of Niccoló Roccatagliata, (active 1593-1636)
Circa 1600

Size: 10cm high
Similar Bronze sculpture required Please contact with details



This bronze was probably used as a handle for a door of a large


credenza. There is a similar pair of cabinet handles in the Bayeriche


National Museum in Munich although not of such a good quality casting


as this model.



The style is characteristic of the Putti figures on candelabra and the


Putti statuettes what were coming from the Venetian renaissance


workshop of the 'Master of the Putto' Roccatagliata around 1600.
