I do not know how early this fabulous Gothic wall shelf (bracket shelf) might be, but you can certainly see the advanced age of it. Neo-Gothic, early 1800s at latest, I would estimate, hearkening back to the 1200s Gothic style that thrills us all in the old Cathedrals, it is like a shelf out of an old church, and probably supported a figure of religious heritage. But this type is wonderful now to support a clock, a figure or grouping of them, or even your stacked towels in that superb guest bath you're working on. Accents to a room make it all your own, and we like using these wonderful old bits to do just that. This one is fabulous, if imperfect. It does miss one of the carved Gothic fringe-drops, visible in our photos. The shelf's full measurements are noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, it's large and impressive, and just less than perfect with one carved fringe drop of Gothic carving gone missing (view photos). No wood worm, no other damage other than a lot of age to this one. Measurements noted on photos, but it is 13'5" tall overall. Nice larger size for your use.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
