Description

This lovely architectural element from Provence has several names: oeil-de-boeuf, chien-assis, dormer, and lucarne, all of which are interchangeable. Comprised of nine pieces of of hand-carved limestone, the building component was designed to be installed on an upper level of a house, with a window fitting inside the interior opening.

Our window surround features a ball finial on top of a square plinth. The arched crown beneath has several layers of molding, each expertly carved by hand. A pair of stylized volutes with thick recessed molding flank the base of the oval opening. There is a parted leaf near the top that slightly hangs past the cavetto border that encircles the opening. At the bottom is a three-piece plinth with quarter round molding.

The French carved limestone oeil-de-boeuf will make a fantastic window surround. It can also be used as a creative mirror frame or a decorative architectural piece.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor nicks and losses. Light staining and discoloration in some areas. Stone is a natural material that can change color with exposure to the elements. The surround has developed a lovely warm patina.
