Bronze - 19th century (?) - origin unknown - very nice, but with some flaws

Antique bronze inkstand, golden colour, with a cherub sitting on a snail.

Beautiful, but wings and one arm of the cherub, and one antenna of the snail are missing, there are small breaks or cracks on the inkstand (as shown in photos).

Cherub with snail is moving because of the old screws that are not so tight anymore.

Origin is unknown (possibly French).

Dimensions: L 21 cm, H 16 cm, D 20 cm

Weight 1670 grams

Accurate tracked shipping.
