Borghese chalkware figures have been a favorite of mine for decades. I think this set is one of the nicest they produced. As time has passed (well over 70 years since these were produced) the odds of these four remaining together decrease greatly. So, you can imagine my delight in finding this foursome, known as "Borghese's Four Seasons", in a Roseville California antique store. I have only ever seen the complete set twice before and neither of them were in this lovely clay and gold finish.
These sweet putti are perfect to place one at a time in seasonal vignettes or use all four together to create a stunning display. Accenting them with both faux and real seasonal botanicals would be a wonderful addition to dining room table, dining sideboard, entry console or mantle.
