: Beautiful late 19th century Neapolitan verdigris bronze faun. The faun is after the classic antique circa 100 BC bronze dancing faun ''Dancing Faun of Pompeii “- originally discovered in Pompeii on 26th October 1830 when the 2nd century BC "The House of the Faun" (named after the bronze) was excavated. The original is now in the National Museum Naples. Neapolitan foundries produced tens of thousands of copper alloy reproductions of items excavated at Pompeii and Herculaneum. The main manufacturers in the period 1860 to 1920 were Sabatino de Angelis, J Chiurazzi and G Sommer. All three issued catalogues. The reproductions were available in different sizes and different finishes including marble and silver.
