B1317 - Fantastic Antique French Carved Wood Gilded Mount, Pediment, Ciel de Lit, 18th C
This is a fantastic antique French carved wood mount / pediment dating from the 1700's. It is very architectural and three dimensional 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 scrolled acanthus leaf crest with scrolled and curled acanthus leaf and rose detail to either side.
The pediment is beautifully water gilded on gesso. The gilding has subtle hints of the red bole base.
The gilding and gesso have distressed and cracked in places but all is stable and the pediment is absolutely GORGEOUS just as it is.
There are two brackets on the back for hanging purposes.
The pediment measures:- 56.5 cm (22.25 inches) wide x 27 cm (10.5 inches) high x 11cm (4.5 inches) deep.
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'.
