Hand-Carved ‘Lady with Book’ Architectural Element
Very old and utterly fascinating, this hand-carved element from France was once part of a larger piece but now this mysterious lady stands alone and keeps her secrets. A lovely example of the carver’s art, our lady leans against a vine covered wall in a flowing, belted gown and headscarf keeping watch over a large book. A noticeable crack has not affected the integrity of the piece and her hands are missing but, even at her greatly advanced age, our lady is still a true beauty.
