A superb, tall and elegant twin columned Gothic Revival antique chimneypiece in finely figured, softly dark grey Saint Anne Marble. This is a wonderful fireplace imposing in its simplicity and one of a kind. The wide moulded shelf rests on twin pairs of attached octagonal columns, each with moulded capitals, supported on sturdy footblocks. The plain frieze is centred by a simple shield above the slow arch of the opening set with quatrefoil carvings on the spandrels.
English, possibly Scottish circa 1860.
Shown here together with firegrate SNo 11882 now sold.
