Italian Gold Leaf Illuminated Niche

About the Item

This large scale Italian display niche dates to the 1930s-1940s and was acquired from a Palm Beach estate. The piece is hand carved wood with a gold leaf finish and the piece is illuminated. Note: The backside is not gold-leafed which was typical because of the cost of the gold leafing and if you can't see it why spend the monies. Note: Overall dimensions: 42" height x 21 1/2" width x 8 1/2" depth. Note: Shelf ledge is 9 3/4" wide x 5 1/2" deep, though if you measure to the front of the curve, it is 8" deep. Note: Requires one candelabra based light bulb, and is controlled by a line-switch. Note: There are a few hairline cracks in the gold leaf finish and evidence of an old restoration for the cracks, but they do not detract from its beauty.
