Fabulous antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era hand carved 9 3/8" x 7" figural wall hanging match, toothpick or spill holder, a delightful detailed female bust with braids, superb detail & visual appeal! The bust is hollowed at the top to hold most likely matches or toothpicks, given the size but it would also be great filled with a bunch of smaller flowers. Carved in what appears to be solid walnut, the figure is both lovely and alluring. Great as a fireplace decorative accent but I also have a few of these hanging in the kitchen. Always great decorative pieces and perfect for candle lighting during those intimate dinner gatherings. Don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. No chips or warping, just a thin age or drying crack at the top center of the wall plaque. The bust is heavy, solid old walnut. See pictures for all measurements.
