Gothic Marble Mantelpiece

About

Black marble Gothic mantelpiece designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott for Preston Town Hall. Very large in scale and carved during the 1860s using blocks of Ashford Black marble, quarried from mines in Derbyshire, England. The mantelpiece was removed from Preston Town Hall during the 20th century and installed in a house in nearby Peak District, until this year, when it was acquired by Ryan & Smith. An imposing castellated shelf rests on half columns carved with pointed Gothic panels and capped with quatrefoil corner blocks. The arched fireplace opening is framed with deeply cut moldings. Above the arched opening are two Gothic tracery panels which come to a point in the centre of the frieze.
