Hand carved ornament, wood, probaby a curtain rail holder, Italy, 1900
Not sure what this used to be but I think is was once part of a curtain rail. What I do know is that it is hand carved, that it is very old, that there are traces of the old gilding in places and that it comes from Italy.
And that it is very very pretty.
