17th Century stone fireplace with carved trumeau and sculpted cornice

A beautiful antique fireplace from the south-west of France dating from the end of the 17th century.

The jambs are narrow at the base and rather swollen on their upper part, thus recalling the balustrade feet of the furniture of that time. The monolith lintel that makes tablet is nicely carved by hand of various patterns (central rosette, elongated diamond finished by arrows). Fine moldings elegantly enclose the rectangular firebox line of this fireplace.

The upper part of this beautiful fireplace (trumeau and cornice) is definitely very Louis XIV (1661-1715): monumental, rich but not too heavely decorated, symmetrical and embellished with sculpted decorative motifs of Italian and Antique inspiration.
The trumeau has rounded corners and is nicely animated in relief with a molded frame highlighted by a pair of colonnades on both sides and by a sculpture representing a garland at the top. The opulent cornice offers a beautiful work of sculptures with a succession of fine moldings and rounded corners.

This ancient stone fireplace is very elegant and will easily adapt to any type of interior decoration.
