An elegant pair of hand carved plaques, each in matching frame and ready to hang or to incorporate into your cabinetry or decorating project. Each has the artist's stamp on back, "Daude". Old, these might well be 1700s but definitely 1800s at most. Themes popular in the Louis XV-XVI eras, bow-top arrangements including the arts and musical instruments, each one topped by a lion's head. Fabulous work! The plaques are sold as a pair, as shown, and they are each 12 3/8" x 8 1/4" - intimate in size.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, there are no chips nor cracks, no losses to the 2 carved plaques, and the original hand-carved frames remain with the plaques. Looking from backside, you can see age. They are 2 items sold as the pair.
