Twentieth century Louis xvi style French fireplace hand carved from a hard Coralline limestone from Brittany. The limestone is white with a hint of warm grey. Due to it’s hardness it is very good for carving and the fireplace shows very fine honed crisp details. The shaped scrolled jambs have carved acanthus leaves surmounted by finely carved paterae. The bowed frieze with fluting and shaped, moulded shelf above.
Very good condition.
