c1680 Carved Oak with Cherubs Corner Shelf


A very nice impressive Jacobean (or earlier) carved oak Corner Shelf in good condition.

The shelf is made of a quarter circle of thick oakwood, with a border of oakleaves wreath. It is supported by two slightly triangular supports which have relief carved cherubs holding sashes. The background features carved oakleaf foliage.

The wood, which has a rich dark brown patina, has had some woodworm, but this now eradicated, and the wood is stable.
