B1198 - SOLD
This is a gorgeous antique French carved wood mount / pediment dating from the 1800's. 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.
The pediment is in the 'baroque' style and has a beautiful central crest from which acanthus leaves cascade to either side. Two scrolls with flowers complete the beautiful design. The pediment is carved to slightly bow out from the wall.
The pediment is gilded on gesso.The gilding has mellowed over the years to a subtle old gold hue. The gilding has distressed in places to show the gesso beneath (please see photos) and there are one or two chips to the wood but it is absolutely GORGEOUS just as it is.
It measures:- 47 cm (18.5 inches) wide x 13.5 cm (5.3 inches) high.
This is a stunning antique architectural pediment to add a château chic finishing touch to an interior. It is from a carefully selected collection of gorgeous antique French decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
