It always amazes me what you can find at the thrift. Today I found a ton of vintage hankies (oh yeah, so there) and this beauty.
This is an Italian reproduction in Carrara marble (some say 90%?) of the Veiled Lady or Veiled bride. The original is by Raffaelle Moni (1818-1881) and is in Chatsworth House.
She has a couple of small chips on some flowers but that doesn't effect her beauty.
It is signed Filli Firenze Made in Italy Which I didn't see as she was super dirty. Scrubbing her down, revealed the signature.
She is about 14 inches high, and on a six inch pedestal....which I just realized that I didn't get a picture of...
