Castings

Castings

This list of castings by Parlanti will be updated as further castings are identified. Casts which are attributed to Parlanti, or are awaiting confirmation, will also be included and clearly marked as such.

As mentioned in the Home page, working from a hand written list of Parlanti casts sited in London alone, it is clear that in a large number of cases Parlanti casts were not marked. Given that the handful of other art bronze foundries of the time did, in the main, mark their casts, it means that any unmarked bronze produced during the years that the Parlanti foundries were active, may well be one of the large number of bronzes that Parlanti produced but that have yet still to be discovered or confirmed. 

When the year of casting can’t be identified, then the year of unveiling is given.
