With plaster over metal and at about five feet in length this French sign is almost more than I could handle. I wrangled it into my Mini Cooper anyway. It just fit.
My intention was to sell it until we hung it on the fireplace.
Game Over. Keeping it I am.
Amour Fait Beaucoup translates to love is much.
I did not aim for all that gilt in our living room.
I thrifted my way there.
With our country braided rug and slip covered beach furniture it is an eclectic look.
The whole room is not pictured because the fireplace is lit.
All the hearth items are scattered about.
It is still cold here and the snow has not melted.
The plaster has some damage but I don't mind.
I have no idea of the age of this variation on the French coat of arms.
Where did I find it?
At one of my favorite antique/junk stores.
It was laying on a twin bed.
Buried a bit and challenging to see.
That gilt winked at me.
