This beautiful Continental European Baroque Cornucopia is a very rare find. It was completely carved out of fruit wood. It dates back to the first half of th 18th Century and was most likely made in Germany or France. It has stunning Polychrome and Gilt Finish.
The cornucopia or horn of plenty is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts. The horn originates from classical antiquity, it has continued as a symbol in Western art, and it is particularly associated with the Thanksgiving holiday in North America.
It is in good condition. It has a beautiful patina and comes un-restored with its polychrome color and gilt (it is possible that the color has been restored in former times). Please note that it has some antique wormholes (mainly in the back) which have been treated just to make sure there is no worm left.
