B1387a - SOLD
These beautiful antique French pediments would originally have been made for armoires or beds and date from the 1800's. They would look stunning over doorways or as a centre pieces on curtain pelmets. They would look superb as part of ciel de lit above twin beds or above a pair of paintings. We also have another pair B1387b, and a single one B1388 listed in our other items.
Their design is absolutely delightful. There is a central bow crest with ribbon tails to either side of which is a leaf and flower bud garland.
The detail in the casting of the metal is fabulous. The gilding has mellowed over the years to an atmospheric patina but still catches the light beautifully.
There is a small crack in the metal of one of the mounts (please see photos) but this does not affect it's sturdiness or aesthetics.
Each mount has 4 holes to take pins for fixing and measures 25.5 cm (10 inches) wide x 5 cm (2 inches) high.
A gorgeous pair of mounts to add a special château chic finishing touch. They are from a carefully selected collection of antique architectural pieces at La Belle Étoffe.
