Antique Louis XV Statuary Marble Fireplace Surround

An antique Louis XV fireplace surround in statuary marble. This original nineteenth century fire surround has been designed in the Rococo Revivial style, with a shaped opening as well as ornate decorative scrolling and detail being used throughout. The lintel of the piece features an attractive carved central seashell cartouche; a motif which is then mirrored at the top of each of the scrolling jambs. Bellflower elements and acanthus leaf decoration both feature heavily on this charming surround.
