About

An outstanding and beautifully carved antique white statuary marble fireplace. The deep rectangular moulded shelf, rests on a frieze exquisitely carved with two pairs of cornucopias, centred by a classical scene. Each jamb has a full length caryatids, supporting end-blocks carved with very fine baskets of flowers.
This superbly carved, pure white statuary marble fireplace was produced in Rome, Italy, between the years 1795 and 1805, for the British market. Roman sculpture, including fireplaces, were frequently purchased or made to order on the Grand Tour and brought to the British isles.

An identical fireplace once stood in the dining room at 19 Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, London, demolished in 1933 (see image).
