19th century.

Good condition. Some wear and lacks.

This series of Neo-Renaissance mural sculptures was made in the late 19th century in Sun stone from the Ardennes, also called stone of Dom. They were originally adorning the facade of a Belgian building.
This stone with a very typical yellow color comes from the Dom Le Mesnil quarries which had provide the substance of many constructions such as the Place ducale in Charleville-Mézières for instance. Its exploiting was ended in 1951.
Our series of sculptures is composed of eight high relief portraits, four men and four women, dressed in the Renaissance style, and three faces of old men made in the grotesque style that we could find in abundance in the decor during the Renaissance period.
We also add a series of architectural decorations in the same style, with cartouche and medallion.
