I've bought lots of these over the years, and most of them we've sold again. I've got a few now that I'm going to use. My plan is to build them into cabinetry renovation in kitchen, and also to have a 4" depth box frame backing made for one that can be wall-mounted as a cabinet in bathroom, mirror back and lined with glass shelves, to use as as upscale medicine cabinet. Might recess the cabinet part into the wall instead. You'll surely come up with great decorator ideas of your own. But in fact, these hang on a wall beautifully just as the fine art and sculpture they are.
Heavy old forest growth oak, 25" x 22.25" x 1" and a carving depth of about 3" in deep bas relief: a game hen in forest setting. Just in from France.
This one is Black Forest game plaque in ready-to-hang self frame. It was once a door to a large cabinet or bar, and does have the lock hardware. Photos tell all. If there's a chip, I haven't yet located it so look closely. You can see slight split at a construction wood seam, but it is not a break. Fabulous for a wall ornament in a Country French kitchen or den. This panel dates 19th century, c. 1850-80s.
