What I can say to this superb early Angel..... it is from my private collection and in a rare to find grand size 16" ( 40 cm )...and I love it very much !!
He is wonderful sculpted with a pretty round charming face and in most elegant posture,with beautiful long wings !!
An excellent condition earthenware shoulder head angel..... and his wonderful sculpted head is turned to the side. He has tiny inset glass enamel eyes ,fine painted brows and facial details. Wonderful pale brown modelled flowing hair , sculpted tips of ears and superb original painted complexion. Fantastic earthenware lower arms and legs with bare feet...both with very fine details and special the long and posed fingers are very excellent. Original wrapped simply body .... As I say... his earthenware wings are wonderful long and with original painting and these give this angel a pose as he wanted to flying !!! I´m not sure about the exact age of him but I think it comes from the 19th. century....
I think also his costume is not original and it was replaced for many ...many years but it fit very well and looks most beautiful with him.
I think you can see on my pictures how beautiful and elegant is this rare and early angel.... I´m sure you will also love this face and fantastic posture. If you like I can send more pictures to your email address...let me know only ...... Very rare to find and soooo charming..... Excellent condition without any damage or problem ,only a little dusty !!
