WARNING! WARNING! THIS IS A DAMAGED PIECE AND IS SOLD "AS IS" NO REFUNDS, NO RETURNS. ASIDE FROM THE 2 DAMAGES LISTED AND SHOWN,THE FIGURINE IS IN OTHERWISE EXCELLENT CONDITION. EVEN IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO REPAIR IT (WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO REPAIR IT TO REALIZE THE FULL BEAUTY OF THIS MASTERPIECE) IT CAN STILL BE ENJOYED THE WAY IT IS . THE PHOTO WITH ALL 4 FIGURES THAT IS SHOWN IS WITH SOMEONE HOLDING THE 2 DAMAGED FIGURES IN PLACE.

FOLLOWING IS OUR ESTIMATION OF THE HISTORY OF THIS MAGNIFICENT SCULPTURE AS IT WAS AMONG MANY PIECES OF A COLLECTION FROM THE 1950-1960s ERA. IT MAY BE OLDER AND WE DOUBT THAT IT IS MORE RECENT THAN THAT. ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT CAN BE PROVIDED WILL BE APPRECIATED . SIZE: A LARGE 12"H x 14"W IF REPAIRED,10"H X 14"W UNREPAIRED (SIZE APPROX) INCLUDING THE WOODEN BASE. TOTAL WEIGHT IS ABOUT 12 POUNDS. THE PORCELAIN SCULPTURE IS SIGNED BY"G.Q". ON THE PIECE ITSELF. THE WOODEN BASE HAS THE ARTISTS' NAME, WHICH I CANNOT TRULY MAKE OUT, "G.QUNANI "(IT MAY BE DIFFERENT AS IT IS HARD TO READ) AND "MADE IN ITALY" NEXT TO THE NAME. ALTHOUGH IT LOOKS LIKE A RENDITION OF "THE CHEATERS" BY VARIOUS CAPODIMONTE ARTISTS, T ARE NO INDICATIONS THAT THIS IS A CAPODIMONTE ALTHOUGH IT SURELY LOOKS LIKE IT. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT IT IS REALLY A WONDERFUL WORK OF ART THAT YOU WILL BE PROUD TO DISPLAY. THE SCULPTURE ITSELF SHOWS 2 BOYS PLAYING CARDS, AND WHEN REPAIRED, TWO YOUNGSTERS HELPING THE CARD PLAYERS CHEAT BY WHISPERING. THE DAMAGES ARE TO THE 2 STANDING FIGURES, BOTH OF WHICH HAVE A FAIRLY CLEAN BREAK NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THEIR FEET. T ARE NO OTHER DAMAGES ASIDE FROM THAT. VIEW THE ENLARGED PHOTOS TO SEE THE WONDERFUL MINUTELY DETAILED ARTISTRY OF THE VERY TALENTED CREATOR. SHIPPING AND HANDLING IN THE USA IS $24.70, CANADA, $36.70, EUROPE $49.70,AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, JAPAN $69.70. PAYMENT DUE WITHIN 3 DAYS
