Anthony's Antiques

I stumbled upon a pretty neat antique store the other day. I recommend checking this place out if you're ever in Salt Lake. It is more like a museum than an antique store. I'm quite glad I came across it. This particular piece is from a church in Amsterdam. It got renovated in the 1950's and this thing sat in storage for a bit. It is a cherub or putto that was made to look as though it was holding up the arches of the church. I think it is pretty cool. Some may say creepy. I would own it if I had an endless supply of dinero because the asking price is about $60,000. No joke. Its from the 1600's so it's not like you'll be finding many more quite like it.
