Handcarved from solid French walnut and given an ebonized finish, this charming cherub is posed in the manner of the caryatid, an ancient Greek statue form that was commonly found in architectural supports and pilasters designed by the great masters of the ancient world. The feather skirt adds an interesting dimension, as does the basketweave motif on the top. One could easily display a small vase or other objet d'art on top if one was so disposed.
Circa 1870s.
