Pair of 17th Century Italian Carved Wood Putti

About

Wonderful pair of Italian Baroque carved putti with original polychrome (painted surface) and gilding. These two have quite a bit of personality, each with his individual expression. The stance is unusual with one arm behind the back and the other hand resting on the heart, a fig leaf covering their privates. With their curling locks they are quite the charming duo. Mounted on faux marble stands.
