Medieval Europe - 900 - 1450 A.D.

Medieval heraldic column from a royal monument



Large fragment from a carved heraldic column with motifs of the French monarchy : three crowned fleurs-de-lys, one complete, a crowned dolphin (probably for Louis XII), and an unidentified and incomplete heraldic element.

The column was part of a royal monument or a monument of the royal entourage, to be compared for instance with the decoration of the Chamber of Accounts of the Palace on the Ile de la Cité in Paris, raised by Louis XII and destroyed at the end of the eighteenth century ...

Visible lacks. Traces of fire. Remnants of original polychromy. Mounted on a removable painted wood stand.

Exportation outside France requires Ministry authorization (one to three months to obtain).
