This is the second and matching item listed.
For sale is a large and well carved antique Gothic style wooden (probably oak) corbel or bracket. In the form of a type of beast/lion/dog with open mouth, extended tongue and fruit, plus a clawed foot at the bottom. A certain grotesque or gargoyle style to it. Carved from solid wood and would guess it is from the 19th century roughly (1820-1880s?), and possibly euopean in origin? Great patina with a rich colour and wear from touching over the years. It is an angled bracket, so the top would extend from the wall and may have held a fire surround shelf/mantel or other piece of furniture. An original item and not a reproduction......The matching one of these is also listed. Please ask for combined postage.
Note it is heavy at 1.9kgs before packing and this impacts on postage.
Good for age. A few chips here and there, at the top of the ears and main, and one piece at outer right ear missing (missing for sometime I imagine as areas are dark). This was prbably due to splitting or the end areas were made with additional pieces. On the back signs of original wooden pegs are there. Front section of the head at some point has split and has been re-glued. See images.
