Wonderful French Regency style antique black stone fireplace

This wonderful and original Regency style antique lava stone fireplace dates back to the 18th century.

This well-proportioned fireplace was hand-carved out of a natural French stone by a skilled stonemason. The color of the lava stone makes the whole piece unique and very original.

This fireplace features a finely molded shelf that gently sits on a very wide monolithic lintel. This shapely lintel is decorated with various hand-sculpted ornaments such as a very beautiful symmetric shell that is a very characteristic feature of the Louis XV and Regency styles. The hearth line features a beautiful protruding bolection molding that flanks the central shell with scrolls and volutes. The S-shaped console jambs are straight and thin. Their upper parts are decorated with finely carved motifs.

This wonderful antique lava stone fireplace comes from the French region of Auvergne, known for its volcanoes!
