This is a set of 6 19th century carved wooden plaques, found in France at a Brocante, the story is that they had been hanging on the nursery wall of a local chateau, the chateau had recently been bought and the original owners cleared out all the rooms.
I would say they were of an African origin, they are intricately carved and would look stunning in a modern or period setting, I would like to see them re-hung in another nursery where you could have a zoo theme.
