MORGAN PIRATE WARRIOR Bronze Sculpture Figure 22K Gold 800 Silver G. The Morgan Pirate Warrior Figurine is a bronze sculpture with 22K gold and. 800 silver annealed to the bronze using the Cellini method which is a very difficult process but was mastered by Milanese artist G. The sculpture with base weighs just under 3 pounds. The figurine is a slightly smaller scale than the others I have listed. The sculpture itself stands about 7 tall from tip of hat to the feet. It stands under 8 3/4 with the base. The sword has a slight bend that can be straightened. There is some light wear to the sculpture and base but no damage. On the bottom a brass plate notes that this figurine is 38/200 U. The bronze feet are tightly affixed on the bottom of the two tier onyx base. The sculpture is tightly affixed to the base with a nut and bolt. I have made no attempt to clean or polish this statue. This is one of 7 bronze sculptures I have listed by artist Giuseppe Gippe Vasari (1934 – 2005) of Milan, Italy. Each piece is signed by the artist. Each sculpture was limited to 500 total – with distribution in USA ranging from 200 or 250 out of the 500. Each piece is numbered on the bottom with total U. Below is an excerpt from one of their 1970’s ad pages describing the artist and his works. These are true works of art with great detail in the craftsmanship. Vasari’s Man-the-Warrior figurines do not show up for sale very often. The Gift World of Gorham proudly presents the inspired work of the universally acclaimed Milanese artist, Giuseppe Vasari. Vasari’s magnificently sculptured figures depict a panoramic history of man in authentic period costume. Each figure is a masterpiece, painstakingly created with the intricate and imaginative detail that only a master artist of Mr. Vasari’s caliber could accomplish. But equally important as his skill and his talent, is the unique method he employs to create his work. He has revived and mastered the Cellini-inspired method of fusing precious silver and 24-karat gold onto hand-cast Italian art bronze. Such a meticulous method as this completely rules out mass production. In essence, each figure is an original work of art and is signed by the artist as an original. The figures stand 8 ¾ to 12 inches high and are mounted on luxurious, polished onyx bases. Dramatic and beautiful, each is a masterpiece of today, and an heirloom of tomorrow. Photographing is tricky and I did my best to capture the item without glare and with proper color shading using the camera’s flash along with natural light. Thanks for your interest!
