English Oak panel depicting four Wyverns, circa 1650, probably Lancashire. This is a spectacular piece of deeply incised carving with the beasts set in pairs, and presented with great energy. They are depicted with arrow-headed tongues, and with collars above scaled bodies, and lined gouging through their tails. The combination of these decorative techniques has an averall effexct which gives a wonderful texture and movement to the scene. The top moulding is exceptionally well carved in a fairly abstract design. The whole carving is possibly the top frieze from the back board of a four poster bed.
