The fine old chateaus and manors of Europe, c. 1600-1700 had wall paneling in some rooms that was made up of carvings, put together into complete paneling. This pair would have been among the carvings dismantled from such an estate. I bought them in France, but they might well be Dutch or Northern European. Artisan accents for your own home. The pair are nicely preserved and are each 18" tall and approximately 4" wide, 2.5" in depth. Grapes, acanthus, palmettes - could be 1st Empire, but we think earlier, and so did the estate from which we purchased this pair. Whether you use them in your custom cabinetry or to flank a door or just hanging as wall art - or perhaps upright on wire supports and a nice marble plinth base, they're sculptural works of art and heirloom legacy. I have no more room to put such treasures to use. Maybe you do.

Very good to excellent condition. One has a small chip to the nose of the lower figure, face, which has been smoothed out and isn't a distraction. There is a small chip on each on the outside trim at neck of upper figures (see our images) but otherwise they've fared very well all this time. Each one carved from a single piece of wood, as you can see from the back side. I am unsure of the type of wood. The stain is dark, as you see, and would make one think of walnut perhaps, but from back they look like they could be oak. I'm not an expert on wood, unfortunately. Particularly European.

The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable has been eliminated as an option by , forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replacable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks!

We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it.
