    A substantial Regency fireplace surround in beautifully coloured and veined Ashburton Marble from the Lindhay Quarry in South Devon. The moulded shelf, set above a cushioned panel frieze, rests on a pair of tall half round tapering columns fronting the jambs. English, early 19th century.
    Shown here with firegrate SNo14748 not included.

    Notes: In 1852 The Western Times, a Devon newspaper, reported that some large blocks of marble had been excavated from quarries adjoining the ancient Stannary Town of Ashburton. It was suggested at the time that the marble be used for the making of chimneypieces as the veins and colour were considered very decorative and superior to that found in any other quarry in South Devon. The Linhay Quarry was still being mined into the late 20th century. King Edward I's Stannary Charter of 1305 had established Tavistock, Ashburton and Chagford as Devon's Stannary Towns, they were where locally mined refined tin was assessed, coined, and sold.

    An elegantly simple William IV finely figured Regency Portoro Marble fireplace surround shown with firedogs. English, circa 1830.

    Shown here with chenet SNo 14498 not included in the price.

    Notes: Varieties of Portoro Marble have been found in different parts of the world the most beautiful comes from the quarries on the Island of Palmaria, in the Gulf of La Spezia, Italy. The Portoro used to make this fireplace could well have come from there. The Italian Portoro Marble was first discovered and extracted in Roman times and is rightly regarded worldwide as a luxury marble because of the high quality and the distinctive black and gold veining.

    A rare 19th century Statuary Marble and ormolu, gilded bronze, chimneypiece in the French Regency style with a large, exquisitely carved 18th century panel after Clodion (1738 – 1814).

    The fireplace, originally in the drawing room of Brook House located at 113 Park Lane in Mayfair London, was made to accommodate the extraordinary 18th century panel which was probably acquired during a Grand Tour.
    The panel depicts 'Le Triomphe d'Amphitrite' who can be seen in the centre riding a dolphin attended by putti, tritons(mermen) and nereids(mermaids). Finely applied ormolu, set beneath the cornice shelf and on the jambs and sides, frames the panel and there are intricately detailed ormolu rams heads and tumbling festoons adorning each jamb above which are corbels embellished with large ormolu acanthus leaves.
    Provenance: Brook House, Park Lane, Mayfair, London. English late 1860s.

    Notes on Amphitrite & Poseidon.
    Amphitrite was one of the fifty Nereids who were attendants of the sea-god Poseidon. On first seeing Amphitrite Poseidon fell deeply in love and ardently pursued her. When she fled his wooing he sent dolphins after her who finally persuaded her to return to become his bride. The bearded figure on the far right of the panel could well be Poseidon himself.

    Notes on Brook House.
    Brook House was built in the French style from 1867-1869 by the architect Thomas Henry Wyatt for Sir Dudley Coutts Marjoribanks, the 1st Lord Tweedmouth. The interiors were designed by the renowned 19th century decorators Wright & Mansfield who were strongly influenced by French design. Please see photo below of the Brook House Drawing Room which shows the fireplace in situ. The photograph is courtesy of the Country Life Archives and was taken by Charles Latham in 1902 for The King Magazine and later included in 'London Interiors' written by John Cornforth and published by Country Life.

    Ernest Cassell, private banker to Edward VII, bought Brook House from Lord Tweedmouth in 1904 and lived there with his granddaughter Edwina Ashley who later became Countess Mountbatten when she married Louis Mountbatten in 1922. Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma was the uncle of the present Duke of Edinburgh. Their marriage was attended by the then King and Queen and the Prince of Wales and the reception was held in Brook House. The couple later moved into a suite on the third floor. The house was mostly demolished and rebuilt in 1933–5 with neo-Georgian designs similar to the neighbouring houses. Each floor had a single apartment and the Mountbatten's double-story penthouse, completed in 1937, was reached by a private, express elevator. The lower apartments were rented out and one of the early occupants was Harry Selfridge, who occupied an apartment there in 1936. The property was further remodelled in 1998 incorporating 16 new luxury apartments.

    A late Regency antique fireplace carved out of Welsh Heather Blue slate, with bold acanthus scrolled endblocks above panelled reeded jambs. The central tablet on the frieze represents the Prince of Wales Feathers and is his Heraldic Badge, consisting of three ostrich feathers emerging from a coronet above a ribbon bearing the motto " ICH DIEN " which translates as " I SERVE ". As well as being used in royal heraldry, the badge is sometimes used to symbolise Wales and particularly the Welsh Rugby Union.
    Welsh circa 1820. Photo before restoration.

    Notes: Welsh Heather Blue Slate is mined in The Penrhyn Quarry located in Bethesda, the largest of the Welsh slate Quarries. It is unlike any other slate in the world. In Victorian times it was most commonly used for roofing tiles but has also often frequently featured in designs for prominent London projects as at St Pancras & Kings Cross Stations, Buckingham Palace and at Number 10 Downing Street the official residence of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

The Regency period in Great Britain emerged after King George III was deemed unfit to rule - his son ruled as his proxy during this time and was known as the Prince Regent. Although The Regency period lasted a mere nine years (1811-1820), the Regency aesthetic extended beyond this time, encompassing emerging trends in literature, fashion and architecture - as is evidenced in the intricate designs of antique Regency fireplaces and chimneypieces.

A period of elegance
The Regency style is often noted for its elegance and advancements in the fine arts and architecture - throughout this era major social, political and economic changes were also taking place. During this period Regency fireplaces evolved to accommodate the larger mirrors favoured at the time - fireplaces were consequently made lower to allow for this new fashion, a technique already used in French fireplace designs many years prior.

A return to antiquity
Antique Regency fireplaces embody a departure from the glamorous, intricate designs of the past, into a simpler, more austere style. The major source of inspiration for Regency fire surrounds was found in Greek and Roman antiquity, from which designers borrowed both structural and ornamental elements. Antique Regency fire surrounds reflect a more reserved approach to the use of classical ornamentation. Corniced shelves were made simpler, and reeding became a popular decorating technique in many designs. Regency fireplaces embodied a more refined elegance than previous Georgian or French styles, featuring smooth lines and gentle curves. Due to their classic design, these fireplaces have become increasingly popular as additions to more modern interiors - incorporating Regency décor brings a classical and elegant feel to any home.
