Niche Figures of Music and Song
A pair of carved sandstone parapet figures representing Music and Song, the figure of Music depicted playing a wind instrument, the figure of Song holding an open book, English, ca. 1860. Music approximately 58 ins. high, 26 ins. wide, base 16 ins. wide, 13.75 ins. deep; separate sandstone bases 10 ins. high, 18.5 ins. wide, 18 ins. deep. Song approximately 58 ins. high, 24 ins. wide, 16 ins. deep; base 15 ins. wide, 12.5 ins. deep; separate stone base 10 ins. high, 18.75 ins. wide, 16 ins. deep.
Barbara says, "No doubt these two graced the facade of a Music Hall in England. They are not carved on the back implying their use in niches".
