Fabulous Putti

I have always loved old Putti and Cherubs... and the limewood carved ones are most Divine. I am going to start a collection of them for my store. Most of these are from 1700 - 1850. Some of them are from Churches, other are from private homes and collection in Europe.

These examples you have shown are beautiful. I have 2 small ones above our back entrance door that I will never part with.
