These are a gorgeous large pair of Belgian Angel wings that I managed to buy on my last trip to Holland. They are circa 1930's and are made of a fine net covered in small gold coloured pieces and finished around the outer edge with gold thread. They are in good condition for their age and have a small area where the gold pieces are missing, I have shown this in the photographs. I can also spot a couple of small holes and some age related marks but nothing too terrible. They originally would have been made for children to have participated in Catholic processions but as these wings are large they look as though they were for an older child. They make a wonderful display piece either hung on an Armoire as I have shown in the pictures or they could be displayed on a mannequin. The wings measure 33 inches in length by 22 inches at the widest point.
