Today's treasure du jour is a beauty. Framed wood panel nearly five feet long of which 4 vintage chalkware plaques have been attached. I adore the use of the four seasons in vintage home decor items.
You saw one of last month posts, a set of vintage Borghese chalkware statues "the four seasons". On today's piece, each of the four discs on the panel represent a different season. Children, in relief, are surrounded by their own seasonal flora and fauna and the name for each season in French.
This unique piece was found at a local estate sale. I was so happy to find it in such good condition. I think I will paint the cream background a new color but not certain of color yet...maybe a deep gold. Consider this framing idea for any group or series of decor items you may have. Plates, tiles, clocks, smaller paintings, even a collection of metal crosses or seashells would be beautiful mounted in this fashion. I will be using this piece over a bed as a compliment to a headboard and fabric cornice with side panels.
