Enormous Antique Spanish Hand Painted Ceiling Medallion Spain circa 1890

An enormous antique Spanish hand painted ceiling medallion ornament with the chandelier hook Spain circa 1890. This unusual architectural piece was originally the centrepoint of a ceiling in a grand palazzo from which a major chandelier was suspended. Please enlarge the additional photographs to see the excellent balance and symmetry of the wood work as well as the elegant use of colour and gilding that highlights the entire piece. The use of two different patterns to form the eight points is quite striking as four points feature an organic plant design with the opposing points being geometric in shape. The centre of the ceiling mount is full of carvings that encircle the four central acanthus leaves that frame the chandelier hook. The contrast between the outer border and the inner extravagance of carving is enchanting.  This piece is a wonderful artifact and is quite beautiful displayed as an object on the wall.
