In the taste of Jean-Bernard Turreau (1672 - 1731)
Made of oak with a patina, the belt is carved with acanthus leaves, feathers and chimeras on both sides of a faun mask. It rests on two strongly arched legs decorated with dragons, joined by a spacer carved with a grimacing face.
The decorative vocabulary is reminiscent of Jean-Bernard Turreau (1672 - 1731), known as Toro.
