Seller: keltyk1 (1,803) 100%, Location: Fife, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 153601525249 Byron portrait plaque. Antique. Age not known. I would guess 1880s at latest, but could easily be Georgian in my humble opinion. It's carved by a very competent hand. 5 inches diameter. Very good to excellent antique condition. Very good to excellent antique condition. I can't see any proper issues. It has a nice patina of age. Probably there are some light signs of wear and tear if you look hard enough. Nothing un-befitting of antique carve wood. A good quality semi hard wood. It has very fine pores, something like oak but much finer. Obviously too dark for oak too. Odd as it sounds, in trying to find the age of some antiques, I use my sense of smell. The back of this smells like a dusty old library. It almost certainly spent much of its life on the wall panelling or end of some shelves in some library somewhere. It turned up at auction in East Central Scotland and I have no provenance for it. Note the inscription is in tiny bas relief letters and of impressively fine realisation. It would have been much easier for the artist to have cut them into, rather than in relief from the background. Condition: Very good to excellent antique condition. I can't see any proper issues. It has an excellent patina of age. Probably there are some light signs of wear and tear if you look hard enough. Nothing unbefitting of antique carve wood., Type: Plaques/ Signs, Colour: Brown, Style: Georgian, Decade: Unknown, Material: Wood, Original/Reproduction: Antique Original
