Pair of Italian Carved Limestone Statues of Spring and Autumn
This pair of beautifully-weathered carved limestone statues will add an instantaneous Old-World elegance to your garden. Surmounted on late 20th C "antique" finished concrete pedestals, Autumn and Spring face each other to form the perfect pair of welcoming sentinels. Their heavily-weathered surface with lichen and greening belies their true age. Autumn holds a rarely-seen cluster of acorns, while Spring guards her traditional basket of flowers.
Spring has had two repairs...one to her neck and the other to her waist that are slightly darker than the rest of the statue. Autumn is in perfect condition.
Spring measures 43.5" hi x 15" wide x 12" deep. Autumn measures 43.5 hi x 15.5" wide x 12" deep. Pedestals measure 18" hi x 14" wide x 12" deep. Overall measurements: 61.5" hi x 15.5" wide x 12" deep.
