Wonderful Louis XV wedding style fireplace made of white stone quarried from Sainte Hermine in Vendée. Carefully sculpted, this fireplace has several carved details:
Thin and straight jambs topped by a shapely lintel shaped like a crossbow centered by a tablet carved with a heart. This nicely carved heart symbolizes a wedding gift. The hearth opening is flanked by rope moldings that are Louis XV in style. The hood is slightly sculpted with thin vertical column moldings and hand-carved circular paterae on each side. The centerpiece is beautifully molded with a frame in relief, moldings and curves. The rounded cornice has also beautiful moldings.
This fireplace wad unassembled in a nice abandoned stone house in Vendée (French Department). The quality of the pieces salvaged in this house reveal that the fireplace was probably owned by a noble family during the 18th century.
