Pair of 19th Century Cast Lead Cupids from a Municipal Fountain

$4,200per set

About

Stunning pair of cast lead cupids, originally part of a grand public fountain, now destroyed. The seated cupids hold a wine goblet in one hand, and a cluster of grapes on the other. One figure has some damage, specifically the wine glass is bent, one wing is also bent, and one leg/foot is misshapen, please see images. These are a rare find, not often seen on the market. Great for either indoor or outdoor use, very well detailed, impressive and decorative objet d'art.
