Pair of rare oval carved and lacquered wooden France Louis XV
Period mid-18th century
Measurements 80 x 68  thickness 25
In excellent condition, still with the original painting perfectly preserved.

Extraordinary pair of wooden wall sculptures carved in high relief with parts in the round and lacquered to reproduce white marble
Each depict two splendid full-length cherubs with naked bodies moving among rich floral garlands.
The oval shape of the compositions brings out the exceptional elegance of the sculpture.
The gilded frames that surround the two works complete them perfectly, delimiting the lacquered surfaces with a very fine carving with thick plant motifs.
The beauty of these two rare artistic creations is highlighted in a magnificent scenic effect arranged on the wall in various positions.
Coming from an important Roman palace, however, their French origins are clear, expressing the most sought after Louis XV style of the 18th century with a subject so loved by the artists from beyond the Alps.
