Antique photo print of Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen’s popular marble piece “Angel of the Night,” carved in 1815. Along with the Angel of the Day, these were some of the best loved and most widely reproduced images in the 19th century. Some people see the angel carrying the children and presume this is a mourning image representing children being carried off to heaven. Rest assured: It’s only bedtime.

Presented in its original frame, which is quite large: 19.5” in diameter. Heavy wear to the paint on the frame and cracks that were repaired with filler. You might want to sand and gild or paint the frame, but personally I like to see signs of age.
