Carved and Painted Cartouche Plaque from Italy

This wonderful hand carved and parcel paint plaque in the shape of a stylized cartouche is from Italy. The crown at the top is resting upon a shield form with painted demi figures of winged dragons. Surrounding the entire shield are thick scrolling, beaded acanthus leaves. A rectangular block is at the bottom held by a three-petal motif. The molding and crown are a worn gold, while the rest is parcel paint cream, pale blue, and touches of red. The background color of the shield area is gray. The plaque would go very well in a variety of interiors, on a wall or over a mantel.

CONDITION: Very good condition with intentional distressing to paint and wood.
