Antique 1920s Bronze Crying Baby Mounted Marble Bust Sculpture After Bernardo Balestrieri
A symbol of new life, this Bronze Bust of a Crying Baby displays tenderness and raw emotion. Bernardo Balestrieri (1884-1965) sculpted the incredibly realistic sculpture and then bronze castings were made from it. Although this Baby is over 100 years old, it retains all of the original details and very little aging overall. Liven up any room with this warm, lovable, energizing bronze sculpture!
Condition: Excellent condition, without any scratch marks or scuffs. Corners of marble base are slightly worn. Some marks along base where bronze has rubbed (see photos). Signed “Balestrieri” at back of neck.
