A Very Fine and Rare Antique early 19th Century Grand Tour Carved from one piece of Italian Marble. Memento Mori of Clasped Lover's Hands (depicting everlasting togetherness in life and death).
Expertly carved in the finest detail in life size, is a Man and Woman holding hands. Clasped in an embrace with the Lady wearing a ring on one finger and with a lace frill cuff. The Gentleman with a buttoned cuff. They both have very finely carved fingers and finger nails. In excellent condition for age with minor staining to one finger and minor wear through age.
As you would expect (please see photos). The Finest example I have seen and such a touching subject - Totally Charming!
