Hand-carved in oak during the 1600’s, this sculpture of two lion heads was originally part of a French furniture or architectural element. The two mascarons are facing in opposite directions, connected by a two inch thick beam. A more recent black iron base offers stability for displaying on a mantel, shelf, or small table. Our 17th century oak lion heads sculpture has a deep brown patina and would make a wonderful addition to an office, library, or living room.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with a fantastic rich patina. The carving is a fragment of an original 17th century piece of furniture or architectural element (old fills to dowel holes on the underside). Presented (loosely) on a modern iron base. Acceptable nicks and losses, commensurate with 400 year old wood.
