Pair of terra-cotta statues of cherubs (putti) at play
Pair of terra-cotta statues of cherubs (putti) at play : Presumed 19th century, this pair of delightful statues depicts two pairs of putti at play. One holds a bouquet of flowers, another a bundle of sticks, and the other pair play over flowers held high. Will one snatch from the other …..? … these are joyous scenes.
The statues are in fair condition, but have been repaired in plaster in places, however with a good colour match.
