A rare antique medieval King's head, carved wooden. Architectural, 19th century
Here is a superb carved wooden head of a medieval King. The piece has been made from oak with a super darker patina. It has been carved from a piece of solid wood. The character depicted in the carved face seems good and the King, of course, is depicted wearing his crown. The head has been attached to a shield shaped back board and there is a metal staple to allow it to be wall hung.

The overall condition of this piece is very good, but the left hand side of his face shows a split in the wood due to age and most likely a slittle shrinkage. There are a few other minor hairline type cracks, one under the chin and some others. Non of these are worrying, just signs of the items age ands authenticity. Nothing is loose or shows the least sign of movement. There is a little variation to the original varnished or polished finish in parts.

It is possible that a piece if missing from the top of one of the crests of the crown (right hand side) since it does not quite match that on the left - if so this would be a very old loss since the wood is similarly coloured all the way through. These small defects are shown in the detail photographs included in this item listing. This is a superb item which would complement any collection of medieval or gothic themed home or collection of artefacts. The carving measures about 6.25 inches (16 cm) in total length and about 6 inches (15 cm) in width.
