Numerous small bronzes of vastly varying quality have been attributed to Roccatagliata; if only a fraction of the music-making angels attributed to him actually came from his shop, it must have been a flourishing enterprise. Certainly by him are a seated Virgin and Child (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), as well as Adam and Eve and two music-making putti (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna).
