Antique French heavy cast bronze d'or gilt metal furniture mounts pair


Shipping to United States: $44.03


A superb pair of heavy cast bronze d'or furniture mounts, in French Eighteenth Century Louis XVI style, with rubbed gilt finish.
These heavy antique cast items are in good condition although the finish is patinated and tarnished with age. You might like to clean them up and possibly regild them, or you may prefer to keep them in their timeworn patinated finish.
The furniture mounts were commonly used in the design of French Eighteenth Century furniture to protect the edges and corners of furniture pieces as they were moved around within the room or from home to home. It was usual for wealthy families to have several houses and to take their furniture with them when they moved from one to another.
These mounts feature straight lines and stylised cartouches surrounded by laurel leaves, frequently used motifs in Louis XVI design pieces. The base of each has a triple triangle protruding, which may be a stylised version of the arrow flights found on royal insignia in the Eighteenth Century.
The fluted centre portion of the mounts has a repeating floral motif of stylised tulips, another common feature of pieces from this period of French furniture.
Size of each is approx 23cm high, 6.5cm wide and 2cm deep. There are small holes to allow the items to be secured to furniture.

We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!

*Please note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. If you would prefer La Poste domestic delivery PLEASE ASK for a quote.
Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
Outside of Europe we use La Poste International parcel service.
The sales tax is included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance. *The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a PHONE NUMBER to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.

Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
