Antique Brass & Marble Grand Tour Type Paperweight / Desk Object / Curio (Code 2719)

  • £9299


An antique brass owl on a marble base.  From the polishing wear it appears to have significant age and is perhaps an early 19th century Grand-Tour example.  The owl is modelled standing on a book and set on a white marble block.  Such items were used as desk paperweights or ornaments, or collected as curios. 



Polishing wear to the details in the brass, minor wear, nicks and scratches to the marble.  Eyes possibly replacements.
