About

Antique French statuary Carrara marble mantelpiece of large scale and great quality. This magnificent Napoleon III style mantelpiece is beautifully carved in the purest of white statuary marble. The fluted frieze with a highly carved centre tablet depicting two crossed olive branches. Scrolled console jambs are carved with summer flowers, laurel leaves and berries, the same design repeated on the flat side pilasters. It is extremely rare to find an antique mantelpiece of this large size in the Napoleon III style. The Napoleon III style was a highly eclectic style of architecture and decorative arts, which used elements of many different historical styles. It flourished during the reign of Emperor Napoleon III in France (1852-1871) and had an important influence on architecture and decoration in the rest of Europe and the United States. Major examples of the style include the Opera Garnier in Paris by Charles Garnier (1862–71), The Bibliotheque Nationale de France. and the Church of Saint Augustine (1860-1871), The architectural style was closely connected with Haussmann's renovation of Paris carried out during the Second Empire; the new buildings, such as the opera, were intended as the focal points of the new boulevards.
