A very prettily inlaid Italian Neo Classical chimneypiece in the manner of Pietro Bossi, an Italian artisan who worked in Dublin (1785-98). This antique fireplace surround is decorated with inlaid scagliola arabesque designs on the jambs and endblocks, 'Spanish Brocatelle' flutes and floral bordered urn on the frieze. At 86 St.Stephens Green, Dublin there is an 18th century Neo Classical chimneypiece with very similar Scagliola inlaid decorative detail.
Italian, late 19th early 20th century.
