Well here is something that I aquired via my work which had been abandoned in an old loft. It is quite large, about two feet high. It appears to be a carved relief of a victorian gentleman which I initially thought was plaster, due to the colour and the plaster behind the card on the back. But it got a bit bashed on extraction and it looks to be wood, so I'm now thinking wood carving covered with gesso and paint. I have no idea if it is someone in particuar but looks quite well done. In serious need of a clean and touching up. I'm thinking it is probably 1880s ish?
Any thoughts would be great.
