Stock No.13854

A fine Louis XVI French Regence style antique Portoro Marble fireplace mantel. This is a rare beautifully gold veined marble. The moulded rectangular shelf of this antique chimneypiece is set above the simple panelled frieze which is flanked by a pair of square endblocks supported on moulded and fluted corbels above the panelled jambs.French, late 19th century.

Notes: Varieties of Portoro Marble have been found in different parts of the world but the marble used to make this chimneypiece is of the highest quality and could only have come from the quarries on the Island of Palmaria, in the Gulf of La Spezia, Italy. This marble was discovered and first extracted in Roman times and is rightly regarded worldwide as a luxury marble because of the quality and it’s distinctive black and gold veining.
