This is an amazing antique French decorative plinth dating from the 19th Century. It would have come from a church and would probably have been used as a stand for religious figures or church candles. It could be hung on a wall or be free standing. We also have the pair of this, B1596, listed in our other items.
The plinth has a wooden painted top around which is a pierced metal Fleur De Lys frieze which forms the base upon which it sits when freestanding. The top and frieze are painted cream and are edged with a gold paint that that has now faded to a subtle shade of vintage champagne.
We have left the stand as we found it. It is distressed and patinated and is just GORGEOUS as it is - full of antique atmosphere and character which could not be replicated. Please see photos.
It measures :- 40 cms (15.75 inches) wide x 30 cm (12 inches) deep x 8 cms high.
This amazing church plinth is from a carefully selected collection of gorgeous antique French religious & decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
N.B. We have photographed the stand with display items which are not included. The last photo shows the stand with it's pair, B1596, which is listed in our other items.
