ANTIQUE SILVER CRYSTAL SCULPTURE MAN SNAKE MYTH - For Sale

ANTIQUE SILVER CRYSTAL SCULPTURE MAN SNAKE MYTH
Price: $900.00
Antique silver and rock crystal sculpture of the Classic Greek figure of Atlas holding up the world, done with clear Art Deco influence during the early 20th century. Measures a little over 5 1/4 inches high. Superbly detailed figure of Atlas holding up the earth. Stands on a round base with unusual, engraved pattern around the side. Atlas, with huge wavy beard, blind eyes and floral wreath on his head, heroically holding a globe made of pure rock crystal, encircled with a writhing snake, about to pounce. The detail is outstanding - from the finely modelled fingers, to the nails on the toes, the locks of hair and wonderful muscled body. The folds of the toga are somewhat stylised and echo the Art Deco design very clearly. Similarly, the leaf-shaped supports of the globe are engraved with a clearly Deco design. The sculpture is not signed, but it is guarranteed to be silver. Very good condition.
