$5,500.00
Quantity available: 1

This delightful gesso carved group of putti, possibly inspired by "La Source" by Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse (French, 1824-1887) or the works by Claude-Michel Clodion (1738-1814) dates from circa 1900 and measures an impressive 34" tall, 24" wide and 16" deep. Depicted is a cherub spilling water from an urn with another cherub drinking from a shell.   Its design and exceptional construction suggest it comes from the studio of a master, such as Henri Dasson of Paris.  There are no hallmarks. It features a faux marble giltwood pedestal. Condition is good.  There are cracks and losses noticeable at the base of the gesso in the rear.  Restoration services are available prior to shipment.
