Pair of Early 20th Century Carved Wood Funeral Coach Curtain Panels

About

A wonderful pair of early 20th century, carved wood, funeral-coach curtain panels. A mirror-matched pair of matte black, bas-relief curtains with contrasting, gilt rope tiebacks. These sorts of panels were traditionally used as symbolic trompe l'oeil for blocking the windows of early automotive hearses. Perfect, much-desired patina from age. Rare, period Art Deco objects with a bent towards the macabre; fantastic, subtly surreal yet elegant decorative artifacts.
