Description These wall brackets have been beautifully modelled and painted by hand. They take the form of satyrs, who were woodland gods in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. They are traditionally depicted with the upper body of a man and legs of a horse or goat. The satyrs that decorate the wall brackets have entwined grey furry legs, nude male torsos, and grey bearded faces, with mischievous grinning expressions. They have their arms raised, holding colourful fruit swags. The satyrs are set against light blue and pink backdrops, composed of scrolled acanthus leaves. The tops of the brackets feature painted fluting, and they are edged with gilt bands. In their pastel colour palette, and in their delicate, light-hearted classically-inspired ornament, these wall brackets may be described as Rococo in their style.

The wall brackets will make wonderful, colourful additions to a well-designed interior. They can be used to display fine works of decorative art, sculpture or plants, or they could be left unadorned and enjoyed as autonomous aesthetic works.
