A rare and impressive Sarrancolin Opera Marble antique chimneypiece in the Baroque manner, the moulded bolection around the opening is centred by a flamboyantly scrolled cartouche flanked by a cushioned panelled frieze. The jambs with elaborately carved scrolled foliate decoration. The marble overmantel with it's high arched pediment holds a large round statuary marble panel depicting a beautiful young woman finely carved in the Renaissance manner and reminiscent of Shakespeare's Juliet and is signed F. Richard at the base.
English possibly French, circa 1900.

Notes: The Sarrancolin marble quarries are near the towns of Sarrancolin, Ilhet and Beyrede-Jumet in the Hautes-Pyrénées, in southwestern France. This chimneypiece has great presence.
