A Pair Of Majestic Antique French Gilded Wood Carvings, 1850's
This is a majestic pair of antique French gilded wood carvings that date from the mid 19th century. Discovered recently in the South of France, these opulent embellishments are hand carved from wood in the shape of the ever magnificent acanthus, and gilded. Through its age some of the gilding has flaked away creating in the process a wonderful distressed and timeworn patina of exceptional beauty and allure. Each one measures about 31 x 16 x 6 cm or approximately 12.2 x 6.2 x 2.3 inches and they could be displayed in many creative ways, on a flat surface or on a wall if desired. They are highly decorative and exactly as I discovered them. For the full condition please refer to the images!
