Exceptional pair of long hand carved Baroque Fragments in original gilt, featuring two angels. A spectacular and rare to find discovery, these certainly have that decorative quality of exquisite art to bring elegant style to your home. A fabulous addition to your collection of giltwood carvings and religious antiques.
Each was carved by a master carver, the angels or putti have beautiful faces and a serene countenance. They have wear, and stunning faded patina, what you would expect. From a French collector, they have been very well taken care of. I was thrilled to be able to buy them mounted on simple wood museum type stands. These date to the mid 1700's. Measure: Fragment: 19-1/2" x 4-3/8"; with stand: 22-1/2"h; black wood base: 4-1/4" x 4-1/4".
