Pair of Romayne Portrait Panels 

English, c.1550

A life-like pair of profile portraits (doesn't she look haughty!) probably husband and wife. Set in victory wreaths and with Renaissance "grotesque" motifs top and bottom (her lower one echoes his upper one, but simplified -- she was only the wife!) Probably from a paneled wall or screen.

Pair of Panels 

English, c.1650

Typical mid-century panels with lozenges and nice folky pinwheels in the corners. Architectural, not from a piece of furniture.

Lion Corbel 

English, 17th c.

Wonderful humanoid lion! The mouth of a lion, the nose and eyes of a human -- you have to love it!


Details and more photos. 




English or Dutch, c.1675

A benign lion surrounded by baroque scrolls and foliage. Made from two blocks that have been separated and reglued. Is there some special object you'd like him to display for you?


Details and more photos. 



Carving of an Angel 

Franco-Flemish, 17th c.

Quite the little angel! Lovely curling locks, neat wings and a serene, angelic (sorry) expression. Old, medium-brown color.
