B781 - SOLD
This is a superb antique French architectural mount / pediment dating from the 1800's. It is very decorative and has lots of detail.
It would be fantastic to incorporate into a building project as a focal point either inside or outside a house. Or it could just be used as a decorative piece and displayed on a wall or perhaps on a console table with other architectural treasure.
It is made of cast iron in the Empire style. There is a central profile of a Neoclassical head and to either side of this is a fabulous quiver of arrows and a flaming torch. Above the head is a central acorn crest with a rippling ribbon tail and to either side are laurel leaves and acanthus leaf scrolls.
The pediment is a hefty piece and weighs 3 kilos. It has 2 plates on the back by which it was originally fixed to a wall.
It measures :- W 44 .5 cm (17.5 inches) x H 20.5 cms (8 inches) x D 2.5 cms (1 inch).
A stunningly unique piece of French architectural history and another superb antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
