A carved oak Jacobean style chimneypiece and overmantle of modest proportions. The deeply carved strap work frieze on the fireplace is decorated with Tudor roses and roundels containing portraits of bearded noblemen and is flanked by floral paterae end blocks supported on caryatid jambs. The caryatids, set within deep egg and dart bordered panels, stand on carved foot blocks. The overmantle, beneath a simple but boldly moulded cornice, is divided into three panels inset with light coloured fruit wood and black ebony geometric designs. Each panel alternates with male and female terms holding cherub, fruit and foliate panels
English, rebuilt in the mid 19th century with 17th & 18th century elements.
