There are two identical pairs in fact (photo). i can sell one pair or both pairs together.4400 € being the price of a pair.
These large Louis XIV style feet therefore represent a lion's paw adorned with a coat of arms ring.
A woman with a bare chest and a stole stands out in front of a canopy with intricate volutes, each woman looking in the opposite direction. These elements belonged to consoles or woodwork, they are too high to have been those of a table.
The design of these feet is close to that of similar elements from the beginning of the 18th century.
Large bronze elements are particularly rare because, unlike complete movable objects, these pieces mostly disappeared in the furnaces of metal salvagers. A cornice behind the canopy which carried the console top will allow them to be reused as a console or as spectacular lamp bases. A made-to-measure steel plinth was also made to display them as sculptures.
Excellent, Supplied in different tones and gilding.
Height of the cornice support : 82 cm, total height: 92 cm.
