This Antique Painted Panel, or Boiserie, was salvaged from a fine French manoir, and features a centuries-old painted finish atop carved gryffins.  Such panels were also sometimes paired with mirrors to create a trumeau.  In this example, the distressed and patinaed painted finish makes it a perfect choice for establishing the Paris Country or so-called "shabby chic" look for a room.
Circa 1810s.
