Busts and Heads

During the 18th and 19th centuries, many young Englishmen completed their education with a Grand Tour of Europe, often taking several months or more.  They would observe and study the great continental civilisations and would spend much time viewing the remains of the classical Greek and Roman cultures.  Often they would return with marble or stone busts, either antique or copies of the antique, to remind them of their travels

We offer a few busts made of hand-finished reconstituted marble from original moulds to add a finishing touch to your decorating scheme
