Art Nouveau Corbel
Art Nouveau is an ornamental style of art characterized by its use of long, sinuous, organic line. In its heyday, between about 1890 to 1910 it was often employed in architecture, interior design, jewellery and illustration and was a deliberate attempt to create a new style, free of the imitative historicism that dominated much of 19th-century art and design.
In architecture a corbel is a stone or wood projection jutting out from a wall to support a weight. In houses and other structures corbels would often be carved in intriguing forms such as this striking Art Nouveau Corbel design.
The Art Nouveau Corbel is part of our Cotswold Collection; finely crafted ornaments suitable for indoors and outdoors. Cast by hand in frost proof casting stone the ornament can remain outdoors all year round, but is also perfect for indoor placement. This piece is 21cm wide, 26cm high, and weighs about 3kg. The colour is Cotswold sandstone with a weathered marble-like finish.
All our ornaments are cast and coloured by hand in our workshop in Zeeland, the Netherlands.
