Favourite Item
This charming little group of three Bacchic cherubs is Italian, from the second half of 19th century.
They are carved from the purest if white alabaster and are shown frolicking about, possibly having sampled Bacchus's wares, hence the proliferation of grapes and vine leaves about their heads and the wine cup in one of their hands. The sculptor has presented them in lively attitudes, full of life and merriment, there dance accompanied by the music of the tambourine to be seen held by one of them.
