Brucciani Plaster Mask - Cassandra

HOME ALCHEMY
Rare 19th Century plaster mask believed to depict Cassandra - signed D Brucciani & Co, London and numbered (2685). This stunning piece has been mounted for display, and is signed underneath.

Domenico Brucciani was born in Lucca, Italy in 1815. He moved to London where he established a Gallery of Casts in Covent Garden by 1837. Brucciani’s firm, which was one of the most successful, developed links with both the British Museum and the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria & Albert Museum). Both institutions assembled important collection of casts of sculpture and architecture during this period. Brucciani died in 1880, but the business continued until 1920 when the workshops were acquired by the V&A Museum.
