It would benefit from a restoration work

Beautiful though incomplete overdoor decoration, hand carved in fir wood, gilt with true gold leaf. It depicts the face of winged messenger Mercury, and it’s decorated with a crown and a leaf motif.It would benefit from a restoration work. Seller charged an expert to carry out a conservative fixing tweak.It was originally longer: as shown by pictures, it misses a side part. Gilding is in fair condition, with losses, however, considering its age - it’s a 18th century item - it’s full of charm and with a nice antique patina. It was used as an overdoor decoration in a noble Venetian palace. Dimensions: length 77 cm, height 37 cm, depth 1 cmWeight: 1.50 kgCareful proper packaging with protective materials to prevent any damage. Tracked shipping.
