This is a beautiful antique French mount dating from the 19th Century. It is very architectural and would look superb on a wall or would be perfect as a central point from which to hang drapes, perhaps over a bed as a ciel de lit.
It is carved in mahogany in a rustic style. There are 3 plumptious flowers surrounded by luxuriant leaves in a wavy basket.
It is a very 3 dimensional piece with lots of detail in the carving and lovely graining to the wood. It is substantial and has good weight. It is in good antique condition with just one or two chips to the wood which do not detract from the beauty of this lovely old piece.
There is a loop on the back for hanging purposes.
The mount measures :- 45 cm (17.75 inches) wide x 22 cm (8.75 inches) high x 6 cm (2.3 inches) deep.
A stunningly unique piece to add an authentic French finishing touch and another superb antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
