This pair of oak cherub brackets, or “consoles murale” originate from France and date to the mid-19th century. The intricate carvings adorning these marvels attest to the remarkable craftsmanship of their maker. Each corbel is fronted by an enchanting winged cherub holding a bouquet of flowers, their faces expressing pure and innocent joy. The partially stripped oak gives these brackets a unique character, showcasing the wonders of natural wood grain. Behind each cherub, a curled leaf is embellished by additional foliate details, elegantly mirroring the console background’s scrolled curves. A beautiful display of European skill and creativity, these oak cherub brackets will undoubtedly make a strong visual impact on any viewer.
CONDITION: Good antique condition. Losses to some elements, please see photos. The oak has been partially stripped, with traces of the original finish still visible.
