B1134 - Gorgeous Antique Italian Carved Wood Water Gilded Shell Mount / Pediment 19thC
This is a gorgeous antique Italian 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 shell crest with scrolled and curled acanthus leaf detail to either side.
The pediment is beautifully water gilded on gesso.The gilding has subtle hints of the red bole base.
It has had some worm over the years. The gilding has distressed in places and there are one or two chips to the wood but it is absolutely GORGEOUS just as it is.
It measures:- 45.5 cm (18 inches) wide x 17 cm (6.75 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'.
