Beautiful pair of antique 19th century French carved walnut Neo-Renaissance wooden panels. Featuring high-relief decor with troubadour style characters. The central figures depict a man and woman both in exquisite period costume with large feather plumed hats (gentleman holding a roll of parchment and a maiden holding a fan). Impressive carved details and finely rendered, the figures are fully 3-dimensional, on niche balconies surrounded by fluted columns and scrolled motifs. The top of the panels decorated with knight's helmets. Perfect to incorporate into cabinet or furniture doors, or have framed and display as wall decor. The panels measure 23 1/2" height x 11 1/8" width, about 2 1/2" depth. In overall good antique condition with general wear. There is a lack to one foot on the gentleman figure, and a chip to the edge of the balcony below the maiden.
