Monumental 18th Century Marble Fireplace

About

An outstanding and very large 18th century neoclassical statuary marble chimneypiece. Originally from Eglinton Castle, Scotland, designed by John Paterson. The jambs with twin fluted ionic columns, support carved blockings of putti holding Roman theatre masks. The centre plaque carved in high relief with the scene Nuptiales Choreae, the Wedding Chorus being sung by five beautiful dancing ladies. The source for this scene is taken from Admiranda Romanarum Antiquitatum of 1693 by Pietro Santi Bartolis. The son of an architect and builder, John Paterson became a pupil of Robert Adam and served as his ‘Clerk of Works’. He later became a competent architect in his own right, working on many buildings including Pinkie House, Winton House, Kilwinning and Eglinton Castle. Eglinton Castle is situated in North Ayrshire. It was built in 1796 for Hugh Montgomerie, the 12th Earl of Eglinton, a member of the Seton family. The castle was abandoned in 1925, de-roofed in 1926 and the building became seriously damaged during the Second World War.
