This delightful gesso carved group of cherubs dates from the late nineteenth century and measures 34" tall, 24" wide and 16" deep. An allegory to earth and water, depicted is a cherub spilling water from an urn with another cherub drinking from a shell. There are no hallmarks. It features a faux marble giltwood pedestal. Its design and exceptional construction suggest it comes from the studio of a master, such as Henri Dasson of Paris. Condition is good. There are cracks and minor losses noticeable at the base of the gesso in the rear. We may arrange for restoration prior to shipment.
