AN ITALIAN BRONZE GROUP OF THE FARNESE BULL, CIRCA 1890,
after the Antique, nicely modeled and detailed throughout with a lovely blackish to cocoa brown patination, each separately cast figure centering an enraged bull while standing on a rectangular stylized groundwork base, above shallow relief sides depicting foraging deer, wild boars, a pouncing lion, a combatting bear as well as other predatory and prey animals interspersed with sinuous serpents. Height: 15" Width: 11 1/2" Depth: 11"
Good to very good condition with some slightly loose figures and Antiope is lacking her spear, surface and crevice buildup throughout otherwise, no discernible issues.
