A French Baroque style walnut putto from the late 18th century, sitting on a pillow. Created in France during the last quarter of the 18th century, this walnut sculpture charms us with its skillful execution of a chubby putto sitting on a comfortable brocade pillow resting on tassels. Tilting his head to the right and showcasing an endearing expression accentuated by his smile and nicely carved pupils, his is extending his right arm upwards in order to grasp something invisible to us. With its petite proportions and great attention to details, this walnut Baroque style putto on a cushion circa 1780 will be a great decorative addition to any room, displayed atop a chest, side table or credenza.
