B589 - SOLD
This beautiful antique French ormolu mount would originally have come from a mirror, bed or armoire and dates from about 1880.
The centre piece is an exquisite bow and from this ribbon tails trail to either side.
The mount is of excellent quality with good weight. The fabulous detail to the casting gives the bow and ribbon tails their wonderful three dimensional quality.
The gilding on the ormolu has mellowed to a patinated finish with areas of verdigris. This is a gorgeous effect that could not be replicated but could also be polished off if required.
This fabulous decorative mount 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 has 4 holes for fixing and it measures 48 cm (18.75 inches) wide x 7.5 cm (3 inches) high.
Another divine château chic find from La Belle Étoffe.
