Very Rare Set of Antique Papier Mache Decorative Mouldings or Furniture / Wall Applique Consisting of Three Lions Heads, Garlands and Roses, all in good condition.

Some dimensions:: the largest garland is 20 cm across. Each lion mask measures 7 x 6 cm and with a height of 3 cm. The little oval palmettes measure 7.5 x 3.5 cm.

These decorations would be applied to your walls or furniture and then painted to match - or would be covered in gold and gilded.

Hardly any of these antique examples now survive - these are certainly items for the more specialist collector of interior decoration collectables.

There is an interesting history which goes with these papier mache items - there is a full article about them online at this link:

https://www.buildingconservation.com/articles/papiermache/papiermache.htm

and there is an interesting guide published online by the Georgian Group

On offer here are 19 of these little antique mouldings - including the three of the gorgeous lions heads - so these are on offer at less than £8 each piece.
