This antique French fireplace in patinated limestone is of the transitory style between the reign of the French kings Louis XV and Louis XVI. It was hand-made in the second half of the 18th Century by a master stone cutter.
It presents motifs typical of the Louis XVI style (curves and counter-curves, rectilinear engravings and geometric decors) but also typical of the Louis XV style (large molding sculpted around the hearth opening).
This wide fireplace has a pair of straight legs, a monolith lintel, a thin shelf, a trumeau carved with a molded frame, chestplates, flutes and rosettes, and an overhanging cornice.
The elegance of this fireplace is also due to the fact that all its external angles are rounded. Those of the hood and jambs are even engraved with a fine vertical cartridge.
