Authentic, with signs of ageing
A unique object here for sale: an antique Angel coming from the collection of my great-grandfather. The Angel probably dates back to the first half of the 19th century, it is placed on a wooden base under an antique glass dome.
The Angel is beautiful and incredibly expressive, it obviously shows signs of ageing. It is entirely handmade with all the mastery of Neapolitan crib art, the Angel has a very valuable embroidered robe, almost untouchable as materials can be damaged when touched. My grandfather put some pins on the robe to keep fabrics intact. That is why it was enclosed under a protective dome.
For this reason and because of the good qualities and delicacy of the object, it cannot be shipped but only picked up on site.
The height of the Angel from the ground (including dome) is 66 cm.
