Apex with vase and bust (first half 17th Century)

This elegant piece was one of a pair, the second of which has been lost. The style is early 17th century. Of particular interest is the head covering of the vegetable shaped figures and the animal shaped mask of the central vase. It probably came from the high altar brought to Soriano from Rome in the late 1630s and may be from the decorative side doors as they are similar to Martino Longhi’s other works.
