Baroque Carved and Gilded Wooden Girandole

Regular price $6,900.00

The Goddess of fruitful abundance, Pomona, is represented as a caryatid, carved in gilded wood, meant to support a many branched girandole, or candelabra. Time and wear has only added to its beauty, and, though the finish and gilding has mostly eroded, the carving is remarkably intact. Probably one of a pair. The exuberance of the carving presages the rococo period succeeding the baroque. Goddess measures 57″ high, and 18″ square at the base. 17th century European.
