1800's Carved Wood Architectural Putti on Base St. Anthony

This 1800's wood carving features a draped nude figure of a pudgy putto with his hands atop his head. Original warm patina.

He stands on a turned wood base that sits on another base. The lowest has a plaque that reads St. Anthony. Likely, the second slightly wider base is a later addition that keeps that carving stable.

Perhaps this was a furniture ornament or an architectural fragment as the top of the child's head is a bit flat.

Measurements: 13-1/2" tall with both bases, the putto alone stands over 10" tall, 4-1/2" across the elbows

Very good condition. No cracking to the wood. I see a small chip hidden inside the rim of the lower base. The lower base was a bit loose so for security, I replaced the screw. My screw was only a hint longer than the old one and could stand to be replaced again with one even longer. Good news – no more wiggle.

Non-smoking home. No funky smells.
