Antique French Painted and Gilded Cornucopia Wall Carving France circa 1800

This extremely detailed carved and painted antique French carving is in the form of a cornucopia sculpture from France France circa 1800. The cornucopia is associated throughout the ages with the abundance of the natural world. The cone shaped horn of plenty is always depicted with a generous amount of fruits and vegetables spilling forth in a delightful cascade. The original painted finish with its monochrome palette highlighted with gilding enhances the sculptural three dimensional effect. Originally this piece was in an interior where the only light came from a blazing fire and lit candles so its bold and robust carving was essential in creating the desired lavish effect.
