Pair of angels carved polychrome and gilt, with large guest and relaxing on moulded base with four legs ending in leaves achante.
Genoese Baroque work attributed to the school of Maria Maragliano- Italy.
It should be noted the extreme delicacy of the sculpture and modelled, particularly visible in the hair of young angels, the expressiveness of their faces or visual movement created by their large wings.
This type of base, always topped with carved figures in pure baroque style, was a recurrent theme in the work of Maragliano, even to the point that his son, Giambattista, could not help but take over this iconography considered a true aesthetic heritage.
Period late seventeenth, early XVIII th. century.
Measures: Height 84 cm
Old restorations
Provenance: Private Chapel, noble Florentine family.
