A large and grand Rococo white statuary marble fireplace, profusely carved in high relief to create a true statement piece. The moulded serpentine shelf sits an ornate frieze, carved with stylised acanthus leaves and flowers, centred by a beautifully carved scallop shell cartouche. This motif is echoed in the C scroll cartouche which sits above bold console jambs, also carved with flowers and curling acanthus leaves.
Scottish, mid-19th century.
Provenance: From a private Belgian collection.
