A Wonderful Pair Of Antique Spanish Hand Carved Arms On A Stand, 1850’s

350,00 €Price

This is a fabulous and highly decorative pair of hand carved wood arms that once belonged to a statue of a Spanish santo. Dating from the mid 19th century this curiously beautiful treasure is even more captivating due to its distressed timeworn patina created by the passage of time. I have placed the carvings on an ancient French hand carved and partially gilded stand with faded blue silk that dates from the same period. Each arm measures about 13.5 x 4 x 4 cm or approximately 5.3 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches while the stand is about 4 x 14.5 x 11.5 cm or approximately 1.5 x 5.7 x 4.5 inches. They are exactly as I discovered them on my recent trip to Barcelona in late January of 2022, with signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward their true beauty and a fascinating quality today. For the full condition please refer to the images!
