B1114 - SOLD
This beautiful antique French pediment would originally have come from an armoire 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 gilded metal and is a hefty piece weighing nearly 2 kg. It has a beautiful central flower garland crest below which is a lovely bow with ribbon tails. A laurel leaf garland and another flower garland extend to each side to form the 'arms' of the pediment.
The gilding has mellowed over the years to a lovely shade of old gold.
The mount measures:- 51.5 cm (20.25 inches) wide x 18 cm (7 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'.
