Wooden sculpture depicting a cherub holder

Venezia , Luigi XVI

Beautiful lacquered and silvered wooden sculpture depicting a putto on a standing tripod base and full length.

Nice size and entirely sculpted in the round with the arms raised to hold a cup and a nice movement of the body slightly curved to maintain balance.

The three-sided base with three feral legs is typically of the eighteenth century.

It is a very elegant sculpture made in the second part of the 18th century in Louis XVI style to illuminate the corner of the room in a Venetian palace.

It has been perfectly restored with the restoration of the silver plating in a workmanlike manner and is in excellent condition.

The part underneath the base (not visible) has not been restored in order to ascertain the time.

The total height is cm. 107
