Limestone chateau. French c.1920s

A rare and unusual French carved limestone model of a Chateau - signed and dated R.Norman 1924.Mounted onto a solid walnut board, the main entrance with an exterior central staircase below a balcony, flanked to either side by a castellated cylindrical tower surmounted by a conical spire and conjoined by an elongated gabled roof.

Notes: The intricate detailing and quality of the craftsmanship is exceptional and was probably commissioned by the owners at a time of restoration or as a vanity project.This is a typical castelated chateau of the 17th/18th century and similar in style to the château de Craon, also known as the château d'Haroué or palais d'Haroué, located in a small valley in the centre of the village of Haroué, in the Saintois, in the département of Meurthe-et-Moselle and the région of Lorraine. It was built between 1720 and 1732 by Germain Boffrand.
