Pair of carved wooden consoles decorated with winged putti heads symbolizing the wind. These two sconce consoles of gilded wood on a black background in baroque style date from the beginning of XVIIe siècle. They probably come from a ship of " l'Arsenal des galères " which occupied in Marseille the current Quai de Rive Neuve. The most skilful sculptors, such as Pierre Puget, worked on the decoration and embellishment of these ships and many projects, drawings and models attest to this magnificence. Around 1700.
