A Splendid Italian Creche Angel
A splendid and rare antique Italian creche angel from Naples, 1800's.
This magnificent angel was discovered in July of 2021. The angel originates from Naples in the South of Italy, famed for its hand made creche figures and devotional statues. The head, wings, arms and legs are delicately hand made from terracotta and painted with masterful artistry and craftsmanship. The arms and legs are attached to the body with strong wires that allow them to be positioned in a desired posture. The angel's elaborate dress is adorned with stunning lace and metallic bullion trims as well as an abundance of clear crystals all stitched by hand. It is also created in a way that simulates the movement of the angel in flight. It measures about 35 x 27 x 13.5 cm or approximately 13.7 x 10.6 x 5.3 inches and it is in great antique condition with minor signs of ageing that in my opinion only enhance its true beauty and splendour today. For the full condition please refer to the images!
This is a remarkable and outstanding treasure for a stylish and unique interior that would certainly look amazing not only for Christmas but throughout the entire year.
