Tudor Overmantel

English, 1580-1610

Oak. Carved with three panels of 16th-century strapwork. The two muntins carved with caryatids and the stiles with "wildman" type figures and branches. Not from the most sophisticated of houses, but a good, rural piece with lots of character. Stabilizing straps on back, old damp/worm damage (now stable), 19th-century finish, no restoration.

48-1/2" x 22".
