A carved & painted pine illustrative Medieval style chimneypiece. English 1920s.


Stock No.13196

A highly unusual Renaissance style carved and painted pine fire surround and overmantel in the Elizabethan manner with eight simulated leather panels depicting figures from Medieval times. The four panels on the frieze illustrate two scenes from court; one of a king and his minstrel; the second a jovial lord and jester; the other two illustrate domestic scenes; one of a lady sewing with her children playing beside her and the other of a lady spinning yarn with her cat beside her. The four on the jambs depict scantily clad water maidens each in various poses and bearing pitchers. The reeded frieze is centred with carved strapwork above an opening edged with foliate beaded decoration.
English 1920s.
