Italian Grand Tour Corinthian Style Stone / Marble Model of Ruins, Sienna Marble, Statue / Sculpture. Grand Tour Giallo Antico Marble Model of the Temple of Castor & Pollux.
A very fine and early pair of Roman neoclassical period grand tour Sienna marble models of the Temple of Castor and Pollux and the Temple of Vespasian, early 1800s, Italian. In the 18th and 19th century no gentlemen’s education was considered complete until he made a grand tour of the famous sights of the ancient European world. This pair of elegant temple porticos would forever serve as reminders of Greece or Rome. Crafted from marbles of various colors, the Corinthian style capitals are particularly well carved.
