About

18th century carved wood Santos head We are proud to offer a wonderful example of a fine 18th century solid carved wooden Santos or Apostles head. Of exceptional quality with detail to beard and neck, with head turned to one side bears trace of original paint to top of its head and pupils. Probably a grand tour souvenir mounted on its original period heavily patinated brass repousse ornamented wooden base, an extraordinary object and one of the best we have been fortunate to offer in our store. Dimensions in inches: 22” x W 8” x D 8” Age: 18th century Origin: Unknown Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, an aged patina (coloration) and fading of the wood has taken place across the surfaces as you may would expect from an item of this age. Please expect aged wear and tear as this item is dated from the 18th century so close up photos have been supplied to illustrate this point so please zoom in where needed.
