Part of a pair of gilt wood carvings in the form of a female figure with one arm raised above her head and the other in 'controposto' to it, by her side. She is naked to the waist where a skirt of oak leaves evolves into a scroll of leaves and flowers. The figure is flanked by inward curling scrolls of leaves and flowers. Both show at the bottom at the back a rectangular space for attachment, perhaps to a mirror.
