Unknown Italian Artist - 19th Century: Female Nude in Ivory

I was browsing auctions in Germany this morning and I came across this beautifully executed sculpture of a kneeling female nude currently listed in the auction catalog of Kunst & Auctionshaus Kasern in Hannover, DE. It is of Italian origin, 19th century, and by the hand of an unknown artist in a medium you would not find in this day and time, for very good reasons. Still, beautifully executed.
