Carved Armorial Pediment from a French Chateau

Handsome 18th Century Armorial Carving from the Doorway of a Chateau in France. Carved in teak, the armorial overdoor has winged birds facing inwards to the central cartouche, in the centre of which is an oval shape where an original face carving has been removed. In France, typically many family armorial crests or coats of arms were removed at the time of the French Revolution in 1789, since the armorial carvings were symbols of the aristocracy. This almost certainly explains why the central crest is missing. Due to its relatively good condition, the armorial pediment would almost certainly have been from an internal doorway.

The carving measures 41 inches wide x 13 high. Circa 1700-1780 In good basic condition with some wear.

A pioneer in decorative antiques, Malcolm has been in the business since giving up law studies and given his passion for French and Mediterranean art and traditions, it seems apt that his London shop/warehouse nestles beside the Eurostar Rail Terminus at London's St Pancras Station.

One of the foremost dealers in naive objects, folk art, fairground carvings and the visually decorative, he is driven by his love for objects that fire the imagination. Renowned for unearthing pieces with a rare magical quality, he sources the original, the one-off and the inspiration for regular long time clients and dealers or for newer contacts seeking either something beautiful for their homes or just the making of a good investment.

A visit to Relic Antiques 'Antique Warehouse' is guaranteed to open a door to a star quality stock. Expect the unexpected, from simple craftsman made pieces, or the flippantly amusing like period shop signs and fairground art, to the more sophisticated such as charming paintings and unusual examples of country furniture.
