White Statuary Regency Fireplace Mantel

About

Each jamb bears carved figures of classical Bacchic maidens, one carrying the wine cup, symbolizing revelry and intoxication, the other is accompanied by a burning torch, symbolizing Bacchic fertility and virility. The frieze carved with details in low relief of grape and pine branches, again symbolic of revelry and fertility. The whole on reeded fluted pedestals above foot blocks. The decadent use of statuary marble would suggest that this chimneypiece is of Italian manufacture for the English market, circa 1810.
