Antique French Baroque panelling
Antique French Baroque panelling: This ensemble of fireplace overmantle and a matching pair of mirrored cupboard doors is made in solid oak, traditionally assembled, featuring highly decorative carved mouldings and paintwork with authentic patina. Whether they were made in the 17th-18th century, which corresponds to their Baroque style, is unknown. They are more likely to be 19th century (or perhaps even early 20th century).
The pair of cupboards doors with mirrors each comprises a double and a single door. This complete ensemble will find a home in a noble room, and merits restoration to former glory.
