Full Description:

Carved walnut figure of a kneeling Angel, c.1700.  Once gilded this angel, probably one of a pair, would have held a candlestick in a devotional setting.

On the underside is a carved heraldic badge of two addorsed beasts, perhaps denoting the patron of the chapel or building in which the carving was originally housed.  This is a very unusual feature.

The forearms and hands have been restored.
