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.

Overall excellent, considering the age. Both show some minor old wood beetle damage (nothing active, they have been treated). Both some minor loss to the paint. Please see all photos and request more if needed.
