Miniature heads of two winged puttl




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Naples, mid-18th century

The busts of the putti are made of fired clay and finely painted.

The chubby-cheeked pair of angels is equipped with strong wings and has the original setting from the period of origin.

The small sculpture shows the high artistry of the Neapolitan artists, who were famous in the 18th century for their cots, the accompanying figures, animals, architecture and accessories with bright colours.

Our pair of putti could have hovered as a crowning glory above the cot with the baby Jesus lying in it at the stable of Bethlehem.

Height 7.5 cm, width 7.5 cm.
