Amazing Putti c.1800

THE HOUSE OF ANTIQUES
Early 19th Century Hand carved Wooden Unusual Putti
We are proud to offer a very rare and unusual example of an early 19th Century hand carved section wood putti figure with a black lead face and glass eyes. A unique form depicting an angelic religious figure, the lead face and blue glass eyes is what makes this item so special and even artistic in form with its ever so slightly macabre look. This item would have been displayed in a church alter / setting. Untouched in form and recently uncovered in a 17th century Italian church earlier this month.
Size in inches approx.: H 17” x W 13” x D 8”
Units: 1
Age: 1800
Origin: Italian
Condition: An aged and complete original item, wear and tear is present across the surface of this item, the wood shows a natural patina, the lead face shows great Verdigris colouration also. Both glass eyes are original to its date. One of the hands is damaged with loss to a few fingers, the right foot is also missing a few toes. Wear and age through age is present and respective of its age as shown in the photos provided. The rear of the figure has a mount hole and would have originally been attached to an other figure of stand.

1800
