The simply moulded shelf is seated over Greek key endblockings which flank two fluted frieze panels centred by a well carved centre tablet which depicts Artemis, the Hellenic Goddess of the hunt, her Roman equivalent was Diana, reclining against a recumbent lioness. The jambs incorporate two robed maidens on reeded plinths. English, early 19th century.
