In this listing we have: GRAND TOUR MARBLE SCULPTURE DISCUS THROWER STATUE UNSIGNED - AUTHENTIC CARVED ITALIAN ALABASTER - late 19th century, artist carved white alabaster A vintage ITALIAN ALABASTER MARBLE figurine --- Discobolus of Myro --- this famous and familiar pose of great athletic attitude.... This great figure came back with my grandparents after their 'grand tour' of Europe and was purchased in a French antique store.. Measuring the height including the raised plinth / base makes him about 4 1/2" tall. The highly detailed classical sculpture figure sits attached to the matching alabaster plynth / base, stands upright and proud. The next owner may want to have this statue cleaned/restored a bit - we leave it to next owner to tinker with etc. Most importantly the highly detailed figure and such is all intact and we see no signs of damage --- this sat on a bookshelf out of reach and collected dust. Please review the picture(s) and determine the quality etc. of this grand nice statue. Authentic older item not a 20th century resin cast as is often seen or found now. NOTE - we were asked about marks underneath or artist signature etc - we simply don't see anything on front, back or underneath or we would have included that info in listing. Selling this figure as is. COLOR - figure is white, excuse our poor photography skills = to get close-ups dim lighting. circa 1890's is what we're told. Collector's item, yet eminently appropriate for contemporary use. My grandparents collected quality American / European antique items. They were serious about entertaining in a way I am not. My family invested in quality items for gracious living. Estate Used condition. CONDITION: VERY GOOD overall. Review the posted pictures. Super nice considering suspected age!
