This stunning cast metal fretwork is a piece of decorative architectural salvage that was probably used on an outdoor stairway or terrace in a petit French chateau in the late 19th century. It has a shabby, 1800's green painted condition with all the intricate French details that we love, including flower garlands, foliate designs, a large ribbon swag, circle motifs, and stylized fleur de lis designs. The piece has aged beautifully and has a fabulous patina that adds to its unique character.
This exceptional piece can be displayed as art on an interior or exterior wall, adding history and charm to any space. It would be perfect for flanking a mirror or botanical prints over your mantel, or anywhere you wish to express your individual style. It can also be displayed with a collection of gardening antiques, creating a unique and captivating display.
Overall, this one-of-a-kind green or turquoise fretwork is a truly special piece that is sure to bring a touch of French elegance and history to any space it is displayed in.
