A Fine Pair of 16th Century Carved Oak Parchemin Panels

So-called, because they are an imitation of folded parchment. As is normal with parchemin panels, the centre imitates a “barley-twist”, which opens out at the top and bottom into a goblet-shape, centred by asymmetrical scrolls. To either side of the pillar, are fruiting vines and stylised oak leaves and acorns.

These panels would almost certainly have formed part of a large hall cupboard – possibly the ends which would have been made up of four vertical pairs. (See the example shown here from the Gruuthusemuseum, Bruges).

Flemish, circa 1500.

Height 16 inches, width 10 inches.

Ref 2321
