I love these old Italian hand carved wooden Putti angels; they are wonderful for display if you like that old world look. This little one is just a bust, or head, hand carved and hand painted with a little hole in the back for hanging on a nail head (that's how they made them, usually).
It is in pretty good condition, but the paint is old and crackly, please see photos, He (or she) measures about 4" x 4". I think they are great to show anytime, but some people like them for the Christmas holidays. I would date him to the turn of the last century or thereabout but he could be earlier or a bit later. Probably Italian in origin.
