Gilded wall bracket, Italy, early 18th century

It has on the front a large palmette formed of three rudentées parts with curled bottoms, framed with foliage from which foliage delicately sculpted. At the bottom, a perforated cartridge framed by foliated "cuir découpé" motifs, with finely worked funds; the central part, slightly swollen, in cushion, is decorated with braces with florets on a pattern of "grains d'orge" delicately incised. The tray has in its lower part an arabesque carving and powerful gadroons. The "cul de lampe" is formed of three beautiful acanthus.

Italy, eighteenth century


The quality of the sculpture of this console is remarkable.

The vegetal motifs, characteristic of Italian early 18th century and French Regency, are carved with rare virtuosity, for an aspect at once symmetrical in composition and naturalistic in the execution.

The backgrounds are delicately woven while the carving of the cartouche is executed with mastery and finesse, in the delicacy of the foliage, the carving of the "grains d'orge" or the fine serrations of the foliage. The cartridge and the braces are also of great aesthetic originality, referring to the Italian cinquecento and the French 17th.


CONDITION REPORT:

Restoration and conservation of the gilding by a master having notably restored the woodwork of the lounges of the Hotel La Rivière at the Carnavalet Museum, the woodwork of the bedroom of the Baron Hope preserved at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, the Cabinet des Jeux at the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, as well as rooms for the Château de Chantilly, the Mobilier National or the King of Morocco.

Very good state of conservation of the old gilding.
