Vintage Plaster Plaque Relief Nicolette Forbidden Love 13th century Love Tale

This Rococo style plaster plaque is about the French Tale of Forbidden Love between the famous 13th century lovers Aucassin and Nicolette.

Count Bougars de Valence and Count Garin de Beaucaire are at war. Count Garin's son, Aucassin, is so in love with Nicolette that he will neither accept the duties of knighthood nor participate in his father’s quarrel, unless his father consents to his love for Nicolette. She is a slave, bought by a captain of the town from the Saracens and reared as his own daughter. Count Garin agrees to the marriage of Aucassin to any daughter of a king or count but not to Nicolette.

She is looking over her shoulder at Aucassin. That is how they exchange their love.

This plaque is plaster, not resin. It has been painted several times. It has a satin finish on it. It does have a few areas that require mentioning: there is a small chip from the paint toward the top left, and the background is a bit uneven with paint. Nicolette herself appears to be in near perfect condition.

On the back is a handwritten notation from a previous owner about the fable. There is a metal rod seated within the plaster for hanging.

Measurements: 20" tall x 10-1/2" wide with a 4" relief.

Gorgeous. Please convo me with any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

This is quite heavy and will be insured.

Thanks for stopping by.
