French Cast Stone Angel Figural Planter
We are still not entirely sure what this piece was originally intended as, given its hollow tree-form base, but we would use it as a planter, umbrella stand or, most likely, as the fabulous piece of sculpture it is without adornments. Johnny Angel is missing his left hand, but no matter as his naïveté and joie de vivre outshine all. We can have a bottom mortared to the tree-form base if you like to accommodate a large planting. In good condition overall, the figure has a few hairline cracks to the right shoulder and right ankle that are very solid and do not compromise form or function in any way. These can be repaired upon request.
France, CA 1930s.
