Cherub
Cherub
The bronze cherub is believed to have decorated the upper landing of the grand staircase in first class because it is smaller than the cherubs on the main staircase landings. It was recovered in 1987 and is missing its left foot. The loss likely occurred when the cherub was ripped from its post, according to RMS Titanic, Inc.
