19thC French Gilt Shelf
A wonderful find- 19th century French Gilt wood shelf, hand carved and decorated with beautiful gesso ornamentation in the from of scrolling designs, acanthus leaves, scalloped shell shapes and intertwining borders.
There are just a couple of the usual "cracks" that always come with genuine antique gesso work but the entire item remains solid and 100% sound. It is almost 11 inches wide across the top ( 28 cms) and 7 1/4 inches high (18 cms).
