    Upset and extremely heavy Eros bust....

    I have no information as to who bought or when - also not sure which category to list this item?
    Is it an ornament, accessory or piece of furniture? So am plumping for figurine albeit head only.

    The back has 'Ruggeri' (see pic).

    Does anyone have any info about this 'item' please?

      It is based upon the Eros of Centocelle, I think .... which was a copy of a famous work by Praxiteles.

      Hi vertraio50,

      Thank you :) , i just looked at the link you attached... that Eros looks quite serene, unlike my grumpy one

      somebody's not getting any! [i suppose if Eros isn't getting any, these are pretty bleek times!]

      ..indeed !

      How could the God of love look so cross?
