It could be Errica Tramacere. Here's the link, you can contact her and show her a photo of the item, see if it's her work or the work of her father or another family memeber.

when you say: old bronze sculpture..
you mean old... of 20 years, 50 years, 100 years or what? it is helpful for to know the work period of artist....
also you can show us the complete picture of sculpture?
thanks, suanj

I put it on ebay already with the limited info i had, it was recognized by an ebay user as a late 19th century copy of a bronze found in Pompeii in 1862 called Young Dionysos (better known as Listening Narcissus), Even with that knowledge i still haven't found the accepted name of the artist, here is the title of the auction (i'm thinking a link may be unappropriate in this forum) thanks for your input.....rdavidc
