An absolute stunner. This gorgeous late Victorian mantel really commands a presence with its exquisite attention to detail. Made of solid mahogany, there is an abundance of carved detail executed in a classical style; floriated scroll work, fluted columns with corinthian capitals, and dentiled cornices all carved in beautiful bas-relief. The mirror is in excellent condition and has a beveled edge around its perimeter.
