Details: Wonderful Late Baroque French painted boiserie or sculptural panel, featuring an ecclesiastical scene of cherubs frolicking, pondering, playing the lute and gathering in the heavens. This antique gesso painted board has been hand pieced together and has a bar on the back to mount to a wall like a headboard as well as a screw with a loop on the back top center if hanging is desired. The back looks as if it may have been intended to be admired from both sides, as one of the panels has a full painting and the other is just white washed. The piece features a color scheme of greens, blues, flesh tones and pinks. It is believed to be French, however, could also be Italian.
Dimensions: 46"w x .75"d x 39"h (20 lbs)
Condition: The paint is definitely chipped in places, adding to the piece's Old World, romantic charm. There are some places where there evidence of beetles eating at the wood, which has left some tiny holes.
