Wonderful 19th century hand carved wood panel that's ready to hang or display just as you see it; to frame and hang; or to build into your cabinetry to transform any room. I've seen these used as lids for constructed desktop boxes, too, which would be a superb way to show it off. Very gothic in feel, it's a chimera figure. Bas relief carving gives life-like dimension to it. One of the nicer ones we've seen and the work of a very adept carver. Perhaps from a woodworking house such as Gueret Freres, Paris. We can't know because it isn't marked. The panel is beveled on back, as most mid-1800s and earlier ones are. Has a nicer finished outer self-frame edge so it's really not even necessary to frame it. Just attach hanging aparatus on back and you're ready to go. I love these build into doors on recessed cabinets in a bathroom, or opening to reveal a recessed wine rack. You'll have the perfect way to use it. Distinctive accents! That's what makes your own home unique. This is one!
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, it hasn't any problems such as cracks, warp, chips to work around. Beautiful old wood, warm finish. I can't find a single thing to complain about with this one.
