Item Details

An absolutely stunning and impressive pair of antique wooden corbels, carved with Phoenix, Griffin or eagle talons, above which on one are grapes, pears, flowers and foliage on the other in place of the grapes are more flowers, pears and again foliage all this on a white background, on each side are more carvings. All this work retains the original paint and although chippy in places the colours are bright. The workmanship of both the carving and painting, the feathering on the backs of the legs, The detail on the floral work and the scrolling on the sides is exceptional. I have no idea where they were originally but for sure it was an impressive building and possibly occupied a position either side of a doorway or perhaps with those bold colours have come from a theatre or a seaside pier.
