A whimsical offering from 18th-century France, this small, winged cherub was hand-carved from oak wood during the 1700s. Presented as a grinning cherub, the mascaron is encircled by folded wings that exude meticulous craftsmanship, as noted by the details of each individual feather. Also of note is the shape of the carving: the wood is arched, allowing for added perspective. Proudly exhibit the small cherub on a cabinet shelf, small table, or wall bracket to infuse your space with an aura of antique elegance. Another possible option is to hang it from the wall as a bed crown (for a smaller bed, such as a twin or full), with the canopy flowing between the wall and the carving.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor nicks and losses. Possible old repair to an age separation. The eyelets on the back are not original but could be used for installation or hanging.
