THE VEILED LADY, a bronze bust, after the antique by Monti, 1875.
Also known as the bride, this sculpture was created by the Italian sculptor Raphaelle Monti, who came to live and work in England, 1850. He established his name with the Veiled Lady sculpture, which was purchased by the Duke of Devonshire, and is part of the great Chatsworth house collection.
In 1875 the Duke gave Copeland permission to reproduce this subject in Parian ware, and Copeland commissioned Monti to make this bust for them.
Sculptured Arts have now re-created this model for Chatsworth House.
