Wonderful and elegant, this antique fireplace with trumeau reveals the skilled craftsmanship of the former stonecutters of the 18th century.
This Louis XVI style fireplace was salvaged in a mansion house from Charentes. It is entirely made of “stone of Saint-Vaise” (a white milky limestone initially excavated in subterranean and/or open air quarries in the French Department of Charente-Maritime situated in the west part of France)
The wealth of decoration, the geometric design and the architectural line of this fireplace are very characteristic features of the Louis XVI style. It is composed of (from the upper part to the lower part): a breakfront cornice with dentil and rope moldings, a breakfront trumeau with a decorative addition of a central molding with carved volutes and husks. The lintel has carved frieze, rectangular panels, an oval medallion and flutes. All upheld by thin tapering jambs with beautiful moldings: flutes and flower decorated paterae. The hearth is perfectly square.
This elegant antique fireplace will definitely add an authentic feel to your home.
