Mid 16th Century English Antique Carved Oak Romayne Portrait Panel, Circa 1550
Mid-16th Century English Antique Carved Oak Romayne Portrait Panel, Circa 1550
An unusual mid-16th century English antique carved oak “Romayne” panel depicting a head and shoulders side-profile portrait of a gentleman, set within a roundel. The gentleman wears a hat that is contemporary with the mid-16th Century, circa 1550.
Above the roundel, the panel’s pediment is carved with a winged angel, in typical Renaissance style and below, flanking both the portrait and adorning the lower part of the panel, are typical carved “S” scrolls with foliage and fruit.
The shape and size would suggest English origin rather than similar panels found in France and the Continent.
Condition – as per the images with an old dry surface. There is age-related surface wear and losses to the outer edges. The carving displays very well. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.
