Jennifer, I think what you have is an art project, wall hanging. It is not hand carved.  The pieces are cut using computer generated laser guided saws and routers.  They're made of softwood, probably pine and are flat. They're called "Appliques" and come in hundreds or thousands of different designs, rosettes, leaves, owls, ribbons, etc. See Link.  They cost around $4. to $10 per applique.  Glued to the backer board and covered with Gesso.  Gesso is a substance of gypsum, glue and white paint. When dry it can easily be carved. It can also be molded.  Many picture frames are made of Gesso.


Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

Why didn't you say that there was a wire on back for hanging on the wall?  Seems so obvious. Your withholding vital information makes our research harder. 

You have a wall hanging. There is also a name on back that you also didn't mention. I can't read it as it's not a close-up.

Comment by Jennifer Stuart yesterday

Thanks for the info, Tom. Although the pic presents as horizontal, it's a vertical piece with dimensions of 37" x 5 1/4" and a little over an inch in depth. I hope this additional pics help.

Comment by Cris Peters yesterday

Thanks Tom, it does look like Anne Francis.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

Was thinking of word but couldn't spell it; called a lintel.  See link.\


Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

Jennifer, it's hard to tell what it is w/o dimensions.  Looks like it's about 4 ft tall, and 9 inches wide. Can't see thickness or back, or any of the details, initials, etc. that you describe.

Are there any mounting devices on back, holes where screws were, stuff like that.

May have been over a fireplace or door or window, or alongside one, or on a bed or dresser or an art work.

Comment by Jennifer Stuart yesterday

This item was purchased recently at an estate sale of a couple who are in their 90s who traveled to many countries within the middle east and asia. I'm hoping to learn more about it. I originally thought it was carved out of wood but I'm unsure. There are several distinct carvings including flowers, an owl, a lions head and the side view of a woman wearing a hat with the initials P.S.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Comment by Jennifer Stuart yesterday
Ok, thank you very much, Tom!
Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

Jennifer, if using a PC click on the square blue icon that says (mouse over) "image" and follow instructions.  Copy and Paste also works. You need to type a word/words BEFORE you can Paste.

Comment by Jennifer Stuart on Tuesday
I'm new to this forum and I need help identifying a piece that I recently acquired an at estate sale. How can I upload a photo to this discussion page?
