Thank you for bring Mearto more appraisal inquiries! This item appears to be a bonded stone sculpture depicting a mother and child. The work appears to have been foiled with brass or bronze clad. The signature appears to read Santini. The images upload are a bit fuzzy so please check the signature if that matches.
A. Santini Company was founded by Amilcare Santini. He produced replica figurines in cast resin or bonded alabaster after renowned classical sculptures held in museums. The effort was to offer affordable sculptures to the masses. These figurines are now collectible.
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of metal cladded sculptures of similar subject matter by Santini. Thank you and please take care.
