This capital is one of a pair I have for sale. It is hand carved soft wood (looks like pine), and put together with pegs and old nails. I believe it to be late 18th century to early 19th century. It is 7" high and 8" across at the top. I have put picture wire on the back so they can hang on the wall. They have very nice color. I like them hung as architectural elements, but they would hold a small vase or bowl or some other object on the shelf part...
This is one of a pair of 18th century gilt wood capitals removed from a column. They are hand carved and gilded. They would have been against a surface because most of the back is not carved. They are 7" high and 7" at the widest point.
Offered here is a very interesting decorative panel in the form of a highly carved architectural piece of ancient wood. Incredibly it is a composition piece mounted to a piece of wood. It is made to hang on the wall, although it is quite attractive on a stand as well. It is amazingly well done and the finish is 100% believable as the real thing. It has age, though it is difficult to say how much. I would estimate 30-40 years. The piece measures 19.5" by 15.5" and weighs about 6.5 pounds.
With classic pressed greek key motif, American, circa 1830. Each measures 4-1/2"x47", with a 5" return. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED.

This Japanese ranma (interior transom) from the late Meiji Period shows a graceful curved bridge (taiko-bashi) leading across calm water to a grove of trees. The quiet scene, created with pierced carving on a nicely grained wood panel, is framed with a narrow black lacquered liner and an outer red lacquered frame...
Truly the King of Beasts, this lion is one of the most magnificent I've seen. Artistic detail has been lavished on his facial features and ornately scrolling mane. Probable dating would be 1885-1895, the height of the Victorian Art Nouveau period in Europe, but an amazing amount of gilding remains present.
From an English dealer near Cambridge, the knocker measures a bit more than 4.5 inches from top to bottom and almost 3.5 inches at its widest...
I love old terra cotta. I think the coloration of this piece is just wonderful. It is many different shades of buff, peach and gray with remnants of old white remaining on the front and sides...subtle and just beautiful. This piece (and I don't know the technical name for it) was part of a mantle, at the top of the part that flanks the fireplace. It is 10" high, 5" wide and 4" deep. It dates to around 1900.
