Pair Antique French Louis XVI Painted Wall Brackets Bordeaux circa 1880

A stunning pair of carved, painted and gilded antique French wall brackets from Bordeaux, France circa 1880. Please look at the marvelous wine theme embodied by the grape clusters and leaves visible on all three vertical supports. The combination of the organic quality of the carved and painted motifs is a handsome foil for the Neoclassical geometric shape of the top of each antique French bracket. Interestingly these brackets have a custom made mirrored top backed with gold leaf instead of just a timber top. By placing a mirrored top upon these antique wall brackets they give a gentle reflective glow to whatever is placed atop. The scrolls and flourishes used in conjunction with the straight lines give an exuberant dash to the brackets. The antique painted finish shows the passage of time while the antique gold leaf highlights different sections in contrast with the paint. The artisan who created these large scale antique French wall brackets knew they would be important components in an interior and utilized great skill in making them well balanced and proportional. Whether used as wall brackets or small console tables these pieces will add definite personality to a wine room, dining room or entry.
