Mid 17th CENTURY
Size: 30.5cm x 26cm, 1cm deep
became fashionable at the French court in the 1640's. This plaque is a
panel from a cabinet such as the one in the Ashmolean Museum which is
attributed to Girard Marot. There are also examples of this work in
carved ebony backed onto an oak or pine carcass in the Victoria and
Albert Museum, and at Windsor Castle.
This work is now recognised as French due to its many sources in
architecture and sculpture, and to the work of T.H. Lunsingh Scheurleer
in 'Novels in Ebony' 1956.
