Head of Angel

Wales, 15th/16th c.

Oak. 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. Aged and worn, no losses, no restoration.

6-1/4" h x 4" w x 3" d.
