This large and colorful antique Italian painting depicts a Coat of Arms within a complex architectural design or console. The Coat of Arms features a standing black eagle with outstretched wings, above two sections. The left section depicts a quadrant of alternating red and white blocks and gold castles on a dark blue ground. On the right side, is a collection of 7 gold stars on a dark blue ground. This is all held in by an ornate escutcheon with motifs of C-scroll acanthus leaf corbels, flowers, and more. All this rests between an upper shaped molding with a foliate central motif and a shaped base.
The colors of the painting are in all shades of blue, peach, pink, grey, browns, and more. This large, 17th Century Italian painting will be the focal point of any place it is hung.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with some minor losses to paint along edges. Has been re-varnished at some point. Old touch-ups.
