0.00

An exceptionally Fine pair of Baroque wall brackets. Water gilded with excellent patina with the gold subtly transparent showing its rich red bole, the brackets are rare both for their complexity and large size. An oyster shell shaped cartouche surrounded by theatrical garlands flowers, acanthus, and C curves comprise the upper section of the bracket while the base exhibits a down-hanging pomegranate. The broad shelf above is supported by an articulated quarter round molding. The shelf itself is painted a red ochre and the support a yellow ocher, Italy, circa 1760.

H 33.02 cm x W 33.02 cm x D 33.02 cm
