Wavy-haired angel children's faces, arising from their feathered wings -- this is a beautifully matched pair of cast iron garden planters, designed with flat backs as wall pockets. Such innocent, sweet expressions -- they are superbly molded cherubs that can be enjoyed either outdoors or in.
We think they may have come from an estate where they would have been used on a patio or in a garden for holding flower plants. Uses are limited by the imagination -- mount them on a fence, or they would be beautiful supporting one or two wooden shelves mounted on a wall, if you don't want to put plants in them.
CONDITION is lovely, with beautiful workmanship. There are three original mounting holes on the back plate of each figure. The casting is superb: we can find no signs of filing or mold marks. The original green paint is flaking somewhat, which adds interest and character. There are NO cracks or chips or missing or broken pieces. There IS very light SURFACE rust, mostly inside them, from past use, but it is surface-only, will not worsen, and the heavy metal is not damaged.
SIZE is approximately 13 inches long, and 5-1/2 inches across the top of the deepest area. They are VERY HEAVY: each weighs a full 16 pounds before packing.
These are wonderful architectural pieces - they would add such a unique presence in any home ! We would like to call them antique -- they are definitely old and NOT new -- but it is difficult to guess about the age of pieces like these, so to be safe we will say vintage.
