Exceptional pair of 18th Century French Gilt Wood Angels, hand carved Baroque fragments in original parcel gilt, from a French church. A spectacular and rare 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 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.
