Seller: popper77 (9,074) 100%, Location: Sammamish, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 361839389762 This is an Antique Wooden Pediment with Exceptional Hand Carved Gilt Phoenix. The wood appears to me to be mahogany but I do not know for certain.At the time of the original listing, we are in the process of listing a large number of antique and vintage items purchased in England. These items are an eclectic mix including gold and sterling jewelry, and many unique, and in some cases, one of a kind items, in wood, brass, and iron, and other materials as well.At the time of the original listing this was one of three listings being added for antique architectural salvage, all purchased from the sale seller at a huge antique fair in England, including a 20 piece lot of assorted pieces, a beautiful marquetry and mother of pearl inlaid panel, and a hardwood pediment with a dramatic carved phoenix in the center in very high relief.On close inspection, it appears to me that the pediment was hand made and the phoenix hand carved from a single piece of wood. I think that alone speaks to this being a very old piece, although I do not know the age specifically. The pediment is about 7/16" thick (just under 1/2") exclusive of the carved phoenix which adds an additional 3/4" to the total depth.The phoenix is beautifully hand carved and detailed, and the gilt covering makes this a truly dramatic piece. The pendiment is 22 1/2" long across the bottom, 5" high on the undamaged right side, and 8 1/2" tall to the top of phoenix's head.Despite the damage to this piece noted below, this would be a wonderful display piece.ConditionAs found, the pediment has some significant damage: The panel is cracked from the wing tip on the left, across the body and the other wing, and across the next two decorative scrolls on the right. There is another crack on one wing and on the top area of the foliage between the wing and tail on the right. There is chipped / missing gilt on the feathers at the back of the head, and a smaller such spot on the top edge of one wind. All three decorate top parts of the scroll work are broken off and missing on the left side. The inside most tip is also broken off on the right side as well. These are circled on a closeup photo, and you can see them compared to two of three undamaged ones on the right in the main photo. All of these issues are circle in blue on a couple of the photos. At some time in the past, some rectangular strips were attached to the back to reinforce some of the damaged areas. This can be seen in the photo of the back.The pediment is offered as found / as described / as seen. Please visit our ebay store to view a wide variety of antique, vintage and contemporary items.
