Salvaged from old chateau paneling that was taken apart, this 31"+ panel depicts the figure of Cupid. Likely from a boudoir, you can see it's beveled to mount into a larger crafted wall or furniture piece. We're having a difficult time dating this one, but it's definitely mid-1800s or earlier - possibly way way earlier. These are so great either hung as art, which many like to do, or to build into your own cabinetry for accents that make a decor truly personal. You'll know the perfect spot for this one. Other measurements are noted on the photos.
Very good condition, you can see there is one chip to a corner which is more than the smaller nips to other corners. There might be a surface chip or two on leaves of that ornamental leafy decor active carving that flies out from the cartouche and its Cupid. Nice old finish and the wood is, I think, oak.
