Stunning Large & Rare 16th Century Portuguese Antique Ships Figurehead Depicting a Saint

Information

This is one that should be in a museum!

We are delighted to have sourced this rare 16th Century ship's figurehead depicting a Saint.  By repute salvaged from a Portuguese Galleon.

Carved in the round and standing full length, this figure is depicted wearing a traditional biretta (hat) and vestment.  The lace work to his clothing has been beautifully and intricately carved.

Sourced from a private Kent-based collection where it was previously mounted above a fireplace in a large house.

Condition - surface wear commensurate with age.  Loss of arms. Wear and losses to the back of the head but these cannot be seen from the front. This figure displays very well.

We ship worldwide!
