French Rococo Carving of St George and the Dragon, Large-Scale

About

A very fine and dynamic depiction of Saint George slaying the dragon, carved from chestnut. French, 18th century. With scroll-work and cross hatching typical of Rococo carving. Most likely a 'boiserie' over-door or possibly from a choir screen. Great scale at almost 4 feet wide. A nice dry surface patina from age.
