12972. THE WINGED VICTORY OF SAMOTHRACE. 20th century. Original fine Carrara marble sculpture carved from a single piece of stone in Italy by Italian artisans. Carved after the original with beautiful masterful detail. In excellent original condition with no repair or restoration. Dimensions 10 feet in height. Comes packaged in custom shipping crate. Provenance: Ex Caesars Palace Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Caesars Entertainment, the parent company of Caesars Atlantic City, has been hard hit by the slump in Atlantic City casino revenues over the last several years. As a result they are in the process of reducing and closing at least some of their holdings there which is the reason these very impressive Italian sculptures have become available for a fraction of what they originally cost.
