Pair of carved limewood mermaid wall brackets

Price: £1350.00

Description: These rare and finely carved 19th Century twin tailed mermaids were left in a box by a customer, with a message that they belonged to her grandmother, and that they wished to sell them as they did not have the space to display them properly. Even though they have minor losses and a few old repairs, they still have a great deal of charm and appeal. Probably originating from the Black Forest region, Austria or Central Italy, all of which have historic associations with fine lime ( linden wood) carving, these robust and highly decorative wall mounted carved figures can still be used as originally intended - as you can see both mermaids support a small detachable table that can be used to display, for example, a candlestick or small potted plant. They are being sold as seen, however, we can undertake a certain amount of restoration if directed. Two wall fixings, constructed to snugly slot into the original on the reverse of the carving, accompany them. Measurements - 27 cm deep x 58 cm high x 22.5 cm wide
