Comment on 18.6.1806

I.e. a so-called “piece” mould cast after the so-called original plaster, i.e. finished statues which Thorvaldsen had in his workshop.
Since the list has to be understood as an advertisement for those works by Thorvaldsen that were ready for delivery, this is not a so-called “waste” mould cast, i.e. the first cast of the clay model of a new statue because that would imply a commission for a completely new statue.
