Pair of Romayne Portrait Panels

English, c.1550

Oak. 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. Mounted on boards for hanging, edges trimmed. Minor losses, otherwise good condition, no restoration.
