The Alex G. Malloy Collection of Terracotta Heads and Figures

We have been fortunate to obtain the personal ancient terracotta head collection of Alex G. Malloy, a former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. These interesting pieces originate from a diverse spectrum of ancient cultures and time periods, from primitive cult objects of the 3rd millenium B.C., to Greek and Roman busts in fine classical style. We hope you enjoy browsing this interesting collection and discover a few pieces to enhance your collection.

Unmounted pieces can be mounted by Forum for prices starting at $25 per piece. Request mounting in the checkout comments and we will respond by email with the price and a description of the mount, stand or base.
