‘Androcles and the Lion’ – an early Regency style fireplace

A Regency style white marble fireplace with reeded and ribboned frieze and jambs. The carved centre panel depicting a scene of Androcles and the lion, with associated lions heads to side blockings. Reeded shelf. A copy of an early 19th century original. The moral of this fable, reputedly by Aesop, celebrating the the reciprocity of kindness and friendship between man and beast, whereby an escaped slave helps a wounded lion and is then later spared by the same animal,  is that ‘gratitude is the sign of a noble soul’.
