This is a wonderful antique 19th century Grand Tour bronze figure of Saint Peter seated in the Pope’s throne.  This figure is a miniature version of the full sized sculpture in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.  In the late 1200’s an artist named Arnolfo di Cambio made the Vatican’s bronze statue of St. Peter. A tradition has grown up, to kiss his extended right foot. It has become so popular, that his foot on the original statue has been worn away by now.
