    'PLUM PUDDING'.
    A rare Irish Gothic Revival Fossil chimneypiece of the Regency Period carved in reddish brown Armagh Marble. The deeply moulded shelf of this imposing chimneypiece has projecting podiums at either end above a frieze embellished with a series of carved diamond lozenges. The shelf is supported by a pair of hexagonal free standing fluted columns in front of wide sturdy jambs and all are resting on dual five sided footblocks.
    Irish, circa 1820

    Notes: Sir Charles Coote, of the Royal Dublin Society, wrote in his 'Statistical
    Survey of the County of Armagh' published in 1804 "...as we approach the city of Armagh the soil, though still limestone, yet changes to a purple hue and now approaches a species of marble - fossils appear of a beautiful and excellent quality, the prevailing hue is a reddish brown which mineralogists call 'Plum Pudding'. Many of the chimneypieces in Armagh and for several miles around were made of this native marble". The designer of this chimneypiece seems to have taken inspiration from ancient Greek architecture and in stripping out all ornamentation pre-empted the Art Deco movement by more than 100 years.

The Lion and Antelope are incorporated into the Coat of Arms of the City of Manchester in North West England.

The Coat of Arms was granted to the City in 1842 and was derived from the arms of Henry IV.

    WALNUT TRUMEAU:
    A Majestic Dutch Walnut Trumeau Chimneypiece from a house in the old centre of the City of Haarlem, Holland.

    Purportedly originally part of a panelled room in an 18th century manor house on the country estate of Landgoed Beeckestijn in the surrounding region, it was moved to the house in the City of Haarlem in the 1920's. Carved with Gothic Puginesque elements and fluted columns the elaborate cabuchon bears the monogram JB and is flanked by lion mask heads on the end blocks.
    Dutch, mid 19th century.

    Notes: The initials may be those of Jacob Boreel whose family owned the estate until the 1950s and who was responsible for major renovations to the house in the late 18th century. The manor was built on the edge of the dunes in the Kennemerland region as a summer residence for a wealthy Amsterdam regent. Badly damamged during World War II the manor subsequently underwent further extensive restoration.

    English early 20th century.

    Provenance: The initials on the left jamb may refer to a Frederick Daniel Parslow VC (14 January 1856 – 4 July 1915) who was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces. Parslow was a Master in the Mercantile Marine, and the first from that Service to be awarded a Victoria Cross. He was the oldest person to receive the VC for actions in World War I.

    Notes:The Clipsham fossil stone is dense & hard and will take a polish.

    " AWAY TO NEWMARKET " This delicately carved oak Jacobean chimneypiece is attributed to the provenance of the original Royal Palace built by King James Ist in Newmarket in 1606-10, from which time Newmarket became the “Resort of Kings “as the centre of horse racing which is still known as “ The Sport of Kings “. The Royal Palace was the smallest of King James's palaces and cost £ 20,000 to build.

    James Ist was the first to import an Arab stallion into England for racing. Later, around 1724, three Arab stallions were imported and crossbred with English mares to produce the thoroughbred horse from which all thoroughbred horses worldwide are descended...The original horses were named after their owners: the Darley Arabian, the Godolphin Arabian and the Byerley Turk.

    The first Newmarket Royal Palace built by James I from which this chimneypiece orginates was succeeded by another palace built by James' grandson Charles II of which the present Palace House is the surviving element.

    Please note the image of an advert published in 1934 from Hotspur Antiques which advertises this same chimneypiece as being " from a Stuart King's palace near Newmarket, Suffolk" The original 1606-10 Royal Newmarket Palace was neglected and later destroyed during the Commonwealth / Republic period of Oliver Cromwell. The chimneypiece would have gone into royal custody. It was bought by us on the Isle of Wight where it's provenance was believed to be that it came from a house on the Osborne estate of Queen Victoria.

    Shown with 12570, a 19th century Clipsham fossil stone, Jacobean Revival interior / bolection. English, early 17th century.

The term Renaissance, used here, covers other related periods, styles and regions.  Antique Italian Renaissance fireplaces for example are still to be found in the Palazzo’s and Villa’s of Venice and Florence.  Antique Gothic, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Tudor and Jacobean fireplace mantels can be found in many a great English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish & American Town or Country House or Palace.  During the 18th and 19th centuries the Neo Gothic, Renaissance, Jacobean and Tudor Revival Periods occured when a style or pastiche of a style became fashionable in traditional projects and this practice continues to the present day.

Viewing our range of Antique Gothic, Renaissance and Jacobean fireplaces, chimneypieces and mantels may contain just the one to suit your needs.
