Carving of an Angel 

Franco-Flemish, 17th c.

Quite the little angel! Lovely curling locks, neat wings and a serene, angelic (sorry) expression. Old, medium-brown color.

Figure of an Angel 

French, 17th/18th c.

What a beauty! An angel with a serene angelic expression (what else) and a great hair-do. The dust of ages on all horizontal surfaces. The gown was carved by an artist -- look how the folds sweep right at the waist and foot. At 31 inches, he's larger than many -- just the size to draw your attention in the room. Stands nice and firmly (but don't let the cat get to it) and has also been fitted to hang on a wall.

Pair of Linenfold Panels 

English, c.1550

Small, crisply defined and good looking panels with unusual details near the ends of the folds. A charming pair.

Pair of Lion Finials 

Flemish, c.1675

Cute little charmers! Very well carved. Authentic and decorative at the same time. Small enough to go almost anywhere.

Head of Angel 

Wales, 15th/16th c.

What a cherubic angel (or angelic cherub)! Expressive, full cheeked and pucker mouthed, and all in a wonderfully aged surface. By repute from a church near Conway, N. Wales, acquired by a local family in the 19th c., thence by descent. Recently acquired from the family by a UK picker/dealer from whom we bought it.
