Description

This stunning decorative piece is composed of an antique Italian cartouche plaque mounted on a contemporary metal and wood display stand.  The scrolled cartouche is surmounted by a type of reliquary crown with alternating stylized jewels of lozenges and ovals.   The center of the plaque contains a central passion cross surrounded by 3 protruding stars, while the lower section is finished in a contrasting deep blue coloration.

This cartouche has two small mounting holds along the bottom of the back as well as an area where some type of bracket held it in place.  It was likely part of a larger architectural installation at one point.  The quality and richness of the gilding is still in very good condition.  Today, it will make for a wonderful decorative accessory.

CONDITION: Excellent antique condition.  Was originally part of a larger structure item.  Light surface buildup and minor wear.  Stand is contemporary.
