This is one of the loveliest, most poignant Georgian memorials I’ve ever seen, commemorating the death of a child! An angel and a child rise through the sky, the angel pointing toward heaven. The artistry and balance of the composition is amazing; the angel has dark wings and dress and protectively surrounds the sweet child, dressed all in white. They rise heavenward in a blue sky with dark clouds – all elements are beautifully balanced. Wonderful condition; there’s a small spot of dirt at the edge at 5 o’clock. A few light scratches and a tiny chip to glass and some wear to gilt metal frame. Measures 1 5/8” by 1”.
