B1338a - 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. We have another one of these, B1338b. The two of them would look superb as ciel de lit above twin beds or above a pair of paintings.
The pediment is made of gilded metal and is a hefty piece weighing over 1 kg. It has a beautiful central rose and leaf garland crest below which is a lovely bow with ribbon tails. A laurel branch and an oak branch form the 'arms' of the pediment.
The gilding has mellowed over the years to an atmospheric patina but still catches the light beautifully.
There are 3 holes at the bottom of the pediment for fixing to a wall.
The mount measures:- 40 cm (15.75 inches) wide x 19 cm (7.5 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'.
