Medieval Europe - 900 - 1450 A.D.

Large angle capital, 1200-1225



Large vegetal capital carved with water leaves at angles, terminating with hooks, and separated by stylised leaves. As an angle capital, only two faces are carved.

The vegetal is not treated with realism but stylised, a feature typical of First Gothic. Yet some features such as the round corbel under the rectangular upper part developped only around 1200.

Very well preserved sculpture. The base is broken, making it impossible to put the capital flat on the base.

Good conservation, visible lacks. The hook on the side is not broken, as there was only a flat ball.

We are selling another capital from the same monument, although smaller in size.
