Reproduction in bronze of a Roman lamp stand with figure of a buffoon, from an original found at Pompeii

Neapolitan foundries produced tens of thousands of copper alloy reproductions of items excavated at Pompeii and Herculaneum. Souvenirs were an integral part of the luxury goods industry in Italy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Their manufacture and sale employed large numbers of Italians and contributed to the general prosperity of all the major cities.
