Vintage Italian "Grand Tour" Intaglio Medal Framed NR
- Source: eBay
Very handsome vintage chalk or plaster "Grand Tour" intaglio medal in a silver-leafed shadowbox frame and with a luxe hand-colored velvet backing, as shown. A vintage estate piece from a very good Dallas estate, but NOT antique in my opinion. Most likely made sometime around 1960 by Borghese, the well-known 20th Italian century maker of high-end decorative accessories and it retains what appears to be the remains of an old Borghese sticker on the back, as shown. Excellent condition as the pics show. T ar two minor scuff marks to the frame (very minor and not detracting in the slightest). Also, some very minor discoloration to the velvet backing along one edge, as the pics show. Otherwise perfect with no problems found on very careful and honest inspection. The pics are very honest and show the condition well and you will not be disappointed. Measures about 7.5" long and 6.5" wide and 1" thick; it is a nice-sized piece. NO RESERVE and a very low start and the pics tell the rest of the story, a nice opportunity to pick up a very handsome framed Intaglio for very reasonable money. Please check my other auctions for more interesting and luxe items from good Dallas, Texas estates, everything at NO RESERVE and starting under $10; I'm happy to combine shipping!
