A beatific and gentle smile and all-original silk & brocade costume enhance the appeal of this 8" Archangel made in Europe circa 1880~ (9" tall with the bishop's hat or mitre); the head is poured wax on a cotton-wrapped wire body with hand-carved wooden lower limbs.
The eyes appear to be black glass beads with paint-darkened eye-sockets, a hint of rosy cheeks, red lips, and brunette mohair wig under the tall coral-pink silk hat with gold-metal lace.
His wired body can be posed with care, hands are open and could hold an object, and feet have carved Roman strap sandals - the calves are definitely male.
Costume is colorful and not melting, in changeable blue silk taffeta and blue-pink-green brocade edged in gold-metal lace; from a non-smoking environment.
