These large corner blocks or plinth blocks were used as baseboard blocks
typically at the bottom of door trim, so they are most often found in pairs.
Here are 2 matching ones, and they are being AS A PAIR for $47 with FREE
shipping. The linear gouge work was typical of the early 1900s, and the carved
daisy flourish was also typical of the Arts & Crafts period, so I think these
are from around 1905 to 1925. The gouge work was almost certainly carved by
hand, as these are from a time way before routing bits. The lines are
remarkably even and pleasing to the eye and an indication of craftsmanship. The
wood feels fairly light for its size, so these are probably not oak, possibly
poplar or ash. You can see that these were painted several times, and it should
be possible to get to the bare wood fairly easily. They show dings and chips
and nail holes and wear and both of them have bottom corners with a chunk
missing. Each one measures about 11 3/4" high by 4" wide by 1 1/8" thick. Each
one weighs over 3/4 pound so the pair will be almost 2 pounds.
