OPHELIA ARTS & CRAFTS MARBLE STATUETTE : A Pre Raphaelite marble statuette of Shakespeare's tragic heroine Ophelia, lover of Hamlet. This interpretation somewhat reminiscent of the painting by Arthur Hughes in 1863. Her hands are full of dripping river weeds symbolising her death by drowning after she had been driven mad with grief at the discovery that her father had been mistakenly murdered by Hamlet.
"OPHELIA" is carved into the rectangular base.
English circa 1890, ( photo before restoration ).
