Offering for sale a true pair of fine Italian wall shelves or platforms, gold gilt with center angels, putti or cherubs, each holding up the upper shelf with their hands, their feet standing on a Lion head with elegant mane; all surrounded with elegant scrolls, swirls, and leaves. These are finely constructed, with inlaid wood backs on which are the mounting screws, and it is hard to tell what the front material is made of, they certainly look like wood but could be a composition material underneath. Regardless, the design, technique and workmanship on these is just fabulous, every part executed in wonderful detail and finish. Being a true pair, with the putti not exactly alike, make this set even more wonderful. We believe these to be Italian, but entertain the possibility they could be French, and of course old. Each piece is 12 & 3/4" tall, with the upper shelf 12 & 3/4" wide and 6 & 1/2' deep. Price is for the pair, not for sale individually. This is one of the finest sets we have ever found, and they are in quite nice condition, we see no evidence of any repairs, there could be something small or insignificant. Shipping rate is for shipping in two boxes with extensive packing.
