A splendid 20th century fossil stone and marble chimneypiece in the Palladian manner. Removed from the Banqueting Hall of The Worshipful Company of Leatherers, an ancient Guild institution in the City of London. The massive white Statuary Marble shelf is supported on a fossil stone frieze centred by a plaque of Verdi Tinos green marble and is flanked by scrolled stone and green marble brackets, over a substantial lower frieze supported on either side by large scrolled consoles. The wide low opening has Statuary Marble ingrounds behind which are a pair of concave Verdi Marble inserts.
