19thC Black Marble Chimneypiece in Louis XV Manor
From Cubbit Antiques
A handsome Belgian black marble chimneypiece in the Louis XV manner, 19th century, with pleasingly flowing form.
Its moulded arc-en-arbolette shelf sits atop a sinuous frieze which flows from the powerful shell and acanthus cartouche. The C-scroll rococo canted corner blocks sit on acanthus leaf jambs on bowed block feet, the whole forming a satisfyingly balanced and imposing chimneypiece.
