19th Century French Giltwood Valance

This elegant antique French giltwood and painted drapery valance is in the Regence style.  The raised center has a scalloped shell with scrolling foliate motifs to either side.  The shell and upper and lower moldings are gilded, while the indented portion has been painted a matte black.  The wonderful red bole shows through in areas under the gilding, accenting its age.

Valances can be used for a variety of purposes such as on a wall over a television to close it off when not in use; as an architectural over a niche, or over a window as it was originally.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition; rubs to gilding, paint and wood.
