Large wall ornament with Cartouche and 2 Chimères - mythical animals with lion's head & fish tail - Oak, Wood - mid 19th century

Description
Large wall ornament with Cartouche and 2 Chimères - mythical animals with lion's head & fish tail - Oak, Wood - mid 19th century
France

Fragment, probably from a piece of furniture.
The condition of this sculptural piece of carved wood is very good; the slightly darker shade is due to the remains of the original dark wax and is easy to remove with a little turpentine, so that the original pale oak colour will come back.
