This Victorian wall hanging shelf is in the Renaissance Revival style. There were often referred to as clock shelves and would have been used to display a parlor clock. The hand carved deer is beautifully rendered. Notice the slender ears, delicate eyes and mouth and realistic fur. It’s amazing that the carved antlers are still fully intact. The shelf is accented with original subtle gold incised carvings. The shelf retains its original finish which is in excellent condition having the richest color and very desirable patina. 13"h X 24"w X 8.5"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1880's.
