    Description

    Grand Tour Objects. A 19th century collection of Classically-themed plaster intaglio casts. Made by Paoletti Impronte in Rome circa 1800-1850 for sale to Europeans undertaking the Grand Tour. Bound in one book-like box entitled Dolce Gemme Antich, the collection contains 45 white plaster casts of varying sizes ranging from 3 to 7.5 cm, each depicting a Classical-style bust, ancient historical personage, or classical scene. Rubbing and wear on covers of box, with brass closures on the fore-edge. The verso of the front cover bears a listing of each depiction hand-annotated in Italian, in addition to a bookplate. Some bruising on the blue paper backing, and the half vellum binding shows wear and damage. Good.
