HUGE antique Victorian era French hand hand carved solid oak 26 1/2" x 21 7/8" cabinet or furniture door panel PAIR, now fabulous wall hanging decorative plaques with ornate sinuous vines, foliage and serpent style figural carvings, original mounting hardware and silvered bronze escutcheons and working lock with two keys! Wouldn't these look lovely with custom made gilt wood frames, or simply hung as is really! We've offered many old Black Forest hunt themed wall plaques over the years, these definitely French in style and are actually complete cabinet or furniture doors. Each here with the same or mirrored image of expertly carved leaves, vines, acanthus and those lovely little mythological style serpents on solid oak panels. Both framed in 1" thick heavy, solid old growth European oak (they weigh just under 20 lbs (9 kg) together! Fabulous detail, the carvings are mounted on the solid oak panels and have quite a bit of depth to them. The inner panels, with foliate carvings, can be removed from the thick oak outer frame if so desired, framed and displayed but they'd also make great additions to a custom piece of furniture or cabinetry OR, simply hung & displayed as they are. A wonderful large pair, don't miss them!
Very good to excellent condition. Possibly a small nip to two but, as you can see, the carvings are in superb condition! Exceptional really with a beautiful, warm aged finish or patina. The pieces are in heavy, solid old European oak and weigh just over 20 lbs combined. See pictures for all measurements.
