Description
after Francois Duquesnoy (1594-1643) - Relief, Putti harvesting Grapes - Bacchanal - Ivory - mid 19th century
Flanders

A very well carved elephant ivory panel depicting putti harvesting grapes, treading on them in a vat and enjoying drinks from a barrel - after FRANCOIS DUQUESNOY (1594-1643) a Flanders sculptor in the 16th century but stylistically this relief must date from the mid-19th century and made in Flanders or maybe Germany.

Details like fingers less then 1 mm.
Good condition according to the age with some age cracks due to shrinking. Nice yellow patination.

Presented in a early to mid 20th century frame with the bakcground replaced because of soiling, hence the new tape over the old one on the backside.

An expert report is added to confirm the age. Bidders outside the EU should check own law on import of antique ivory.
