French carved wood alter angle 18th C.
A glorious French carved wood statue of an angel, dating from the 18th C.
Expertly carved from mahogany with with an exceptional amount of detail, especially to the hands, hair and face. It would have been displayed in a French church for most of its life. Lovely wear and colouring to the wood, with some remnants of original polychrome paint. A unique and beautiful piece of ecclesiastical art that displays incredibly well.
