Seller: 1283.linda (2,578) 100%, Location: Burton-on-Trent, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 222805126087 A TRULY SUPERB ANTIQUE MID 19th CENTURY FRENCH GOTHIC WALL BRACKET SHELF WHICH HAS BEEN HAND CARVED FROM SOLID OAK IN THE FORM OF A GRIFFIN.I DO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THIS PIECE AND IT CAME OUT OF AN OLD CHAPEL THAT WAS SITUATED IN THE GROUNDS OF CHATEAU DE TRESSE IN POUANCE FRANCE. THE CHATEAU WAS BUILT IN THE MID 19th CENTURY AND HAS CHANGED HANDS A FEW TIMES SINCE IT WAS PUT UP FOR SALE IN 2013 WITH ALL OF ITS CONTENTS BEING SOLD. I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE I JUST LOVED IT BUT IT IS SO BIG AND HEAVY I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT NOR DO I HAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO DISPLAY IT SO RATHER THAN IT JUST LYING IN THE SHED I THINK IT IS PROBABLY BEST IF IT GOES TO SOMEONE THAT CAN GIVE IT HOUSE ROOM AND DO IT JUSTICE AS IT CERTAINLY IS A VERY IMPRESSIVE PIECE AND MOST PROBABLY UNIQUE WITH IT HAVING BEEN HAND CARVED FOR THAT SPECIFIC CHAPEL.ON THE WHOLE IT IS IN A VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH WEAR AND TEAR COMMENSURATE WITH ITS AGE. IT HAS A FEW OLD WOODWORM HOLES AND THERE ARE A COUPLE OF SMALL AGE RELATED STRESS CRACKS TO THE WOOD WHICH CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS ALTHOUGH PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT IT HAS BEEN MADE IN SECTIONS AND SOME OF THE GAPS YOU SEE ARE WHERE IT HAS BEEN FITTED TOGETHER BUT HAVE NOW OPENED UP A LITTLE DUE TO THE MOVEMENT OF THE WOOD OVER THE YEARS. REST ASSURED THOUGH IT IS SOLID AND VERY WELL MADE AND EVERYTHING ON IT IS ALL SAFE AND SECURE PLUS IT STILL RETAINS THE OLD METAL BRACKETS FIXED ON TO THE BACK TO ENABLE IT TO BE HUNG. THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO THE ACTUAL CARVING AS FAR AS I CAN SEE AND THE WOOD HAS DEVELOPED A WONDERFUL COLOUR AND PATINA OVER THE YEARS.PLEASE STUDY THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOR CONDITION AS THEY HELP TO FORM PART OF THE DESCRIPTION AND IF ANYONE REQUIRES ANY FURTHER INFORMATION OR PHOTOGRAPHS THEN PLEASE MESSAGE ME AS I WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP.IT MEASURES APPROX. 45cms (17.5") FROM TOP TO BOTTOM AND THE SHELF MEASURES 27cms (10.5") DEEP AND 44cms (17") ACROSS WITH IT HAVING A GOOD WEIGHT OF 5.5kgs.DUE TO ITS SIZE AND WEIGHT IT WILL BE SHIPPED OVERSEAS VIA THE EBAY GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAMME WHICH IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE AND VIABLE OPTION.PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU INTEND TO BUY.PAYMENT TO BE MADE WITHIN 3 DAYS OF THE AUCTION ENDING UNLESS PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE- MANY THANKS. PLEASE NOTE:- JUST TO RULE OUT ANY CONFUSION, THE SHELF IS PERFECTLY FLAT WHEN THE BRACKET IS FIXED INTO PLACE AND NOT SLOPING AS IT MAY APPEAR IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS.
