Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The rectangular moulded shelf sits above a frieze centred by an oval relief depicting Aphrodite and Cupid. To either side are swags of flowers with two dove birds resting. The jambs are of classical robed female figures, one with an olive branch and the other a dove, both representing peace.
This superbly carved, pure white statuary marble fireplace was produced in Rome, Italy, 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.
