18th Century Carved Boiserie Panel from France

Period Louis XVI

This beautiful antique French, walnut wood, panel is from the 18th Century.  It is rectangular shaped feautring an inner oval plaque with bas relief carving of a chateau and its grounds beneath crinkled ribbons and flowing foliate vines. A thick linear border of motifs defines the bottom edge.  These panels were often in rooms of wooden paneling or boiserie which would have had the same or similar ornamentation throughout.  They would have been placed over doorways and beneath the crown molding.  Today these panels are used as pieces of wall art, placed upon a table in a holder, or once again, placed over a doorway.

CONDITION:  Good antique condition with old and new restorations, including bow and lower motifs. Some minor losses to other motifs. Piece is fragile in areas, but structurally sound.
