19th Century Spelter Romantic Angel Statue of the "Fairy of Flowers" is exquisite Romantic work by French sculptor Guillemin (1841-1907) in the spirit of the Belle Epoque. Cast in spelter and given a patinaed bronze finish, it rests on a stained wooden base and depicts astonishing detail and realism.
