Provenance: From the Estate of Horst Rechelbacher, Osceola, Wisconsin.

Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, was a pioneer in the field of safe and eco-friendly cosmetics. The same curiosity that led him to explore ways to improve the beauty industry led him to travel the world, collecting rare and beautiful objects as he went.

Height ranges from 5 in to 7 in; width ranges from 4 in to 6 1/2 in; depth ranges from 2 1/4 in to 2 1/2 in.

Condition

All angels with losses to the paint and gilt decoration. Some light losses to the extremities of the angels, particularly the toes. Dirt and dust collected in the recessed areas of the work.
