17th Century Italian Decorative Lintel (Headboard) F1226

Carved, painted and gilded, with the image of a bishop at its center in the act of benediction, this may have surmounted an altar or adorned an alcove in a church or perhaps most likely, a private chapel. A beautiful example of the early Baroque, its carved design in low relief being its particular glory.

59″ high x 57″ across.
