Lovely cherub in very good vintage condition with a pleasing aged patina overall, some signs of wear and use, nothing serious.
Difficult to tell the material - from the weight it appears to be possibly made from plaster (not resin nor metal) and most likely dates from the midC20th.
No major damage or defects - there is a hoop attached to the back indicating this piece was most likely used as a decorative ornament for the wall. The cherub is playing an instrument and has a gold tone lustre with a light copper tone iridescent sheen in places. There are no holes for fixings - just the metal ring verso. Please note no fixings are included with this item.
Ideal for a craft project - to recycle on a piece of furniture or for statement wall or christmas tree decoration.

It can be more cost-effective to ship multiple items together in one package. We are always happy to re-calculate the cheapest price to ship a multiple order - please contact us for a revised shipping cost.
Please be advised our standard delivery times apply to items we hold in stock - made to order items may differ to the standard delivery times indicated above.
BoulotDodo makes every effort to carefully package your item - in the unlikely event that your item arrives in damaged packaging or if you are unhappy with the condition in which you receive your parcel - please DO NOT OPEN IT. Either obtain a declaration/proof from the delivery person or take it, unopened, to your local post office. This will facilitate a claim - especially if you have taken out additional insurance. We also ask that take a photo of the package and contents and email these to us in the event that you wish to be refunded.
We recommend additional insurance for items over a certain value or vintage one-offs which cannot be easily replaced.
Please note all import taxes / customs are the responsibility of the client - in accordance with the requirements of the country of destination.

Additional return information
Every effort is made to ensure BoulotDodo clients understand the condition of the item at the time of purchase. Vintage items often have natural wear and tear - the patina of the object's ageing adds real beauty and means each item is original in its own way. Some of our architectural salvage items may require some finishing work or restoration.
BoulotDodo makes every effort to communicate any marks, blemished, defects etc to clients through both the item description and in photos (which are part of the description). We also indicate whether the item is in 'good' / 'very good' or 'excellent' vintage condition. We are always happy to provide additional photographs or information - please don't hesitate to convo us your questions.
On the rare occasion that you are genuinely unhappy with your purchase please contact BoulotDodo within 3-5 working days of receiving your item. We will do everything reasonably possible to ensure your complaint is resolved.
