About

Finely carved overall with arabesques, birds and scrolls and centered by a cartouche. Cesar Bagard was born in Nancy in 1620. Most of the work known to have been carved by him was completed between 1660 and 1700. His output is recognizable by its Renaissance style ornamentation, shallow relief carving and stippled backgrounds, all features apparent here.

4 1/4in high, 11 3/8in wide and 8 1/2in. deep.
