B1191 - SOLD
This magnificent antique French carved mahogany pediment would originally have come from an armoire or mirror and dates from the 1800's.
It is a fabulously decorative architectural piece and 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.
The pediment is very substantial and three dimensional. It has a fabulous scrolled crest beneath which is a central shield shaped plaque upon which one's own family crest or initials could perhaps be carved! To either side a fabulous swag of plumptious fruit and leaves forms the'arms' of the pediment.
The pediment is in excellent condition. The wood is rich and glossy. There are just two tiny chips to the leaves on the extreme far right as one looks at it, but you would have to search to find them.
The pediment measures :- 54 cm (21.25 inches) wide x 23 cm (9 inches) high x 9 cm (3.5 inches) deep.
This is a substantial and decorative piece to add authentic château chic glamour to an interior and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe.
