Figure of an Angel

French, 17th/18th c.

Walnut. 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. One hand lost, expected losses to paint and gilding. No restoration.
