Furniture - Carvings



English, 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?

Carved Panel of a Marriage 

French, 15th/16th c.

You've got to like them old and really looking it to appreciate this! The surface is alligatored with age and has lost chunks and definition over the years. But what a charming scene -- the priest joining the hands of the lovers in marriage. On the back is a page dated 1522 with an engraving showing the same moment in the ceremony with the comment that it "corresponds well to the social reality of medieval times."

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.

Figure of an Angel 

French, 17th/18th c.

What a beauty! An angel with a serene angelic expression (what else) and a great hair-do. The dust of ages on all horizontal surfaces. The gown was carved by an artist -- look how the folds sweep right at the waist and foot. At 31 inches, he's larger than many -- just the size to draw your attention in the room. Stands nice and firmly (but don't let the cat get to it) and has also been fitted to hang on a wall.

Pair of Linenfold Panels 

English, c.1550

Small, crisply defined and good looking panels with unusual details near the ends of the folds. A charming pair.
