B1057 - SOLD
This impressive antique French pediment would originally have come from a mirror and dates from the 1800's. It would look stunning over a doorway or as a centre piece on a curtain pelmet. Fixed above a bed it could form part of a ciel de lit from which to drape curtains. It would also look superb on a console table displayed with other architectural treasures.
It is made of repoussé metal mounted on wood. The design is absolutely fabulous and features an abundance of mythical imagery. There is a central crest with a human face with ram's horns and ringlets and below this is an oval shield with a lyre. To either side is the most gorgeous rearing horse with a long flowing mane. The horse has a long fish's tail which is curled around a cornucopia of fruit.
The repoussé metal has dulled to a lovely shade of old gold and has the most amazing areas of verdigris. It looks very dramatic against the black painted wood.
The mount measures 80 cm (31.5 inches) wide x 36.5 cm (14.25 inches) high.
A stunning antique architectural pediment to add a château chic finishing touch and another divine French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe.
