A pair of fine marble resin relief plaques, in ornate carved giltwood frames, after the Flemish sculptor Francois Duquesnoy, (1594 to 1644). Copies of the originals made in Paris in the late 19th century. Each depicts Neoclassical scenes of nymphs and cloud-borne putti. One of the figures is probably that of Venus rising from the sea. Each is signed Francois Duquesnoy Paris 1892. The reverse of each bears a bronze medallion with the words Virges Acquirit Eundo ( which roughly translates as We gather strength as we go) and Lutet Parisi M.D. CC.XVIL. In good condition.
French, dated 1892

Notes: Medallion - A depiction of Fame, flying towards a rising sun, sounding one of her trumpets, to which is attached a banner and in her other hand she holds another trumpet.
