These chubby-cheeked little cherubs are so endearing. This little piece is hand decorated gray clay with full red lips, blue eyes, and brown hair with muted gold highlights. There is a beautiful patina to the pinky-brown flesh tone. This sweet little angel is 3 5/8” wide and 3 ¼” tall. There is a hole in the back where this could be hung – the hole also accommodated the artist to work the clay and get an even temperature when in the kiln. There is a little loss of paint on a cheek and a part of the clay is missing in the front bottom where the flesh tone meets the gold; sometime through the years someone painted over it with gold paint that blends well with the rest of the decoration. So please be aware it is there, but it isn’t distracting. Besides this little cherub is one of the sweetest I’ve seen; it makes up for any wear it has from over the many years.
