French Oak carved cupboard door, circa 1530

French Oak carved cupboard door, circa 1530.  It is carved with great panache depicting a seated Lion within a Romanesque arch, with its left paw resting on a shield.  The decoration around the arch has a long “dog tooth” ornamental strip to the left with gothic lights and leaf and bud motifs at the base and the other side.  All in all despite being only a fragment, this is a very striking piece in its own right
