Where to buy sculpture reproduction/copies?

Not the touristy type, but decent reproduction copies that I can use for decorations/displays at home.

Where in Rome is a good place to find such stuff, at not too high a price?

thx!

Most , if not all, of Rome's major museums and galleries have shops, they are probably your best place to buy reproductions. Rome's upmarket shopping area is around Via Condotti, near the spanish Steps, probably worth some window shopping in this area.

There are some excellent reproductions in the Vatican Museum shop (which is inside the front entrance). Because the museums are all run by the same organisation you'll find the same merchandise from museum shop to museum shop. The Vatican Museum shop has alot of stuff that you won't see anywhere else.

In Via Torino there is an outside studio which makes all sorts of reproductions for decoration. I bought a good copy of the Bocca della Verita here (much smaller, of course!!!) which still sits in my garden and has survived all weathers. Look at a map and with your back to Santa Susanna, walk down Via Torino and it is just on the left hand side after the church of San Bernardo. You will be able to see the studio through the gate if closed. Reproductions here, while of good quality, are cheaper than the museum shops. Have a look at street view on this map (put the yellow man towards the top of the street)
