A richly carved Louis XV style fireplace in white marble. The flowing frieze with carved shell, flowers and foliage, shaped jambs with scroll and shell to top, leading the floral drops and stiff acanthus leaves below. Serpentine shaped shelf. The Rococo influence displayed in the Louis XV style of the early 18th century reflects the reaction against the symmetry and regulation of the Baroque period. A copy of an original antique. N.B. May be subject to an extended lead time, please enquire for more information.
