Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An antique Irish 18th century neoclassical marble fireplace of fine quality. The very well sculpted centre tablet depicts the three cupids: the first cupid was the son of Mercury and Diana, the second of Mercury and Venus, and the third of Mars and Venus. At either side of the centre tablet are frieze panels inlaid with semi-precious coloured marbles, the design being swags of bell-flowers hung from rings. Tall pilasters have graduating flower husks in a frame of Sienna marble, these are below end-blocks carved with single cupids.
