Description

Measuring almost 93 inches in length, this carved and polychrome overdoor once graced a French chateau, dating to the 1700s. The sprawling architectural has a foliate theme, with a central, parted leaf stalk flanked by a pair of S-scrolls with volute tails filled with rosettes. A leafy margent emanates from the larger whorl of both scrolls, while a triangular-shaped leaf extends past the smaller volutes. All of the carvings have been painted light gray with golden accents, while the background is a soothing sky blue color. At almost eight feet long, our polychromed overdoor would make a fascinating architectural or sculptural element. It would also make a unique headboard for a larger bed, such as a king or California king.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor nicks and losses. Very light age separations as seen in photos. Traces of old restoration work with more recent fills and repairs. Rigged in the back for hanging purposes.
