A Pair Of Gilt Allegorical Plaster Sculptures Representing Spring And Autumn.
A pair of gilt allegorical plaster sculptures representing Spring and Autumn. Late 18th or early 19th century. Standing on a pair of painted Gustavian columns of later date. These sculptures are originally from a set of 4 representing the four seasons. Our sculpture representing Spring can be seen in the old interior photo from Skärva in the lefthand corner.
Skärva Manor (Skärfva Hergård) is the country house that shipbuilder Fredrik Henrik af Chapman (1721-1808) built on the mainland, just northwest of Karlskrona. Behind the project, Gustav III commanded Chapman to move to Karlskrona to develop a build-up for the Kingdom’s fleet. The manor house is part of the World Heritage Naval City of Karlskrona.
