Item Details

An unusual and possibly rare Neo-Rococo panel on curved mahogany base. Lightly restored. Carton pierre, Lincrusta, papier mâché and Thetford Pulpware are part of a family of wall finishes, carvings, mouldings and embossed effects that emerged in the 18th Century and continued throughout the Victorian era, of which Anaglypta became widespread as richly-ornamented, deep-coloured wall reliefs. This museum piece demonstrates how effective and textural such mouldings were. What looks convincing as a carved rococo panel is in fact a pressed moulding in sectional form (look at joint in photograph). Ironically this piece, having survived the vagaries of amateur paint stripping, is potentially rarer than a carving of the same subject matter and period.
