18th Century Flemish Wood Carved Nativity Angels

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Superb pair of nativity angels. Wood carved with layers of original paint and gesso. Found in a church attic in Belgium. Fantastic craftsmanship and emotion. One angel is 41" tall x 22" wide x 22" deep. The other is 42" tall x 26" wide x 14" deep. Depth measurements do depend on how angels are hung and if they rest against a wall when hanging.
