Bronze Putto Riding Crocodile Candlestick


Antique bronze candlestick from the late 19th century showcases a captivating scene of a bacchanalian putto riding astride a crocodile or alligator. 

The putto, a cherubic figure, is depicted holding aloft entwined vines, which gracefully rise to form bunches of grapes and delicate vine leaves. The attention to detail is remarkable, with the putto’s serene expression and the intricate rendering of the crocodile’s open mouth and twisted tail. 

Crafted around 1890, this candlestick is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship of the era and would make a stunning addition to any antique collection or as a unique decorative piece in a sophisticated setting
