Lot Details
An Italian Baroque figural holy water stoup,
unmarked, Roman School, probably early 18th Century,
modelled as an angel, one arm raised, it's other arm resting on a shell supported by a putto, on a parcel-gilt pedestal base with diaperwork surface, the silver stand coated with copper underneath the gilding, the stand applied with straps and swags, the front with a shield depicting the Borghese arms.

Footnotes
