Wonderful Louis XVI style fireplace made of Savonniere stone. This 18th fireplace with trumeau was salvaged during the demolition of an old stone house situated in the city of Bar-le-Duc.
It is very representative of the architectural style of this period with its slender and geometric line and its engravings inspired by Antiquity.
Its jambs are straight and feature flutes and stop-flutes. They are topped by a rectangular monolithic lintel with a molding running along its lower edge. It is centered by a rectangular panel flanked by 2 sculpted Doric triglyphs. The breakfront shelf perfectly fits the shape of the lintel. The trumeau, with its corner withdrawals, is animated by an embossed molded frame flanked by two vertical engravings. The wonderfully molded cornice ends this beautiful handcrafted fireplace.
This stone is a natural semi-soft calcareous stone quarried in Moselle. It has a slight iron oxide content that gives it a beautiful blond color. This fine-grained stone has been quarried for centuries and was used for building projects or for sculpture. This is a very resistant stone!
