A fine quality 19th Century Italian marble statue of an enchanting young girl sitting on a rock drinking water. Signed; Orazio Andreoni Orazio Andreoni was an Italian 19th sculptor and professor based in Rome whose works in marble were of subjects after the antique, as well as his own compositions which were often historical or romantic works, found their way to American and English collectors alike. He exhibited "Le Pharisien" in Turin in 1883 and "Negrése" in Berlin 1892. He also exhibited in Glasgow in 1888 and is believed to have been active for a time in America (a file on him is in the Smithsonian Institution Library).
