STUNNING & RARE PAIR OF MID 18th c. OAK MALE CARVED WOODEN MANTLE FIGURES c1750


These are a stunning and rare pair of relief carved oak wooden naked male mantle figures.

They date from the mid period of the 18th century and are of European origin. 

Date about c1750. Greek helmet or possibly Conquistador.

Were part of a London house clearance and were displayed either side of the mantlepiece in the drawing room.

Certainly a quite superb pair of oak male carved figures in the seated postures.

Were mounted onto either end of the mantlepiece so the carved arm and hand are on the outside.

Therefore the purposely sawed off arm rests against the wall above the mantle, integrating into the mantle wood.

Superbly relief carved naked figures portrayed wearing helmets with the intricate carved hand resting on the knee.

A left and a right. Carved in relief, therefore one piece carvings.

Each has an overall height of about 10.5inches with an overall depth of about  6inches.

Condition: Considering the age, the overall condition to both is excellent and one is subject to a repair to an ankle and a further repair above.

Chipping under the feet were they were once resting on a plinth or similar.

All as per pictures.

Besides being a very collectable and rare pair of 18th century carved oak naked male mantle carvings, dating about c1750, both would also look fabulous displayed.

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS

 

This paragraph applies only to International bidders, U.S. bidders, ignore this. International shipping cost will be determined at the close of the auction using the eBay calculator. IF THE ACTUAL SHIPPING DIFFERS GREATLY FROM THE ESTIMATE, I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CONTACT YOU FOR THE ACTUAL SHIPPING AMOUNT. THERE IS NO FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. THE “FREE” IS FOR DOMESTIC SHIPPING ONLY. If this occurs, you will not ask for a different or better rate, and you will not ask for a carrier other than the US Postal Service. I will not falsify customs documents, just don't ask. I will not send item to a third party address or call it a gift. All items will be insured for the amount it sold for and this amount will appear on the Customs forms. International bidders must pay via Paypal. Once a package leaves my hands for an International destination, I am not responsible for it in any way, shape or form. These conditions are non-negotiable; your bid acts as your acceptance of MY terms and conditions. As per eBay policy in early '09, International buyers please note that import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. If an International purchase if sent back to me due to buyer refusing to pay customs fees, taxes etc., I will require the buyer to pay for the second International shipping fee to send item oversees the second time—because there are NO Returns on International purchases and not paying for Customs and allowing Customs to send your purchase back to me is not okay.

 

I am not accepting bids from Italy or from buyers with less than a score of 10 at this time.
