I bought it from Antiquitäten Kottmeier, an antique shop in Trier-Germany. I think the seller says that they are German.

They are gilded and made from wood.

If I remember correctly, the seller says that they are from circa 1890 into 1920. So they are from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

Here is the closer look of one of the angels.

As you can see they each have a hook at the top. I think to hang it on the wall.

Look at the angel impression. It is divine! The hand painted colour is still vivid. The angels eyes are black ~ so is this a typical German style of painting?

I am so in love with these heavenly cherubs! If anyone knows more the history about them i.e. are they really German? And what period exactly they were made, please do let me know.
