Museum quality plaster frieze
A beautiful museum quality neoclassical plaster frieze, dating from the early 19th century.
By internationally famed Dutch sculptor Bertal Thorvaldsen 1770-1844. Mounted in a thick pine frame. Good original condition, no loss to the sculpture, some areas of flakey paint. It has the Thorvaldsen museum stamp on the reverse. Very heavy.
