Stock No: 13632

A beautifully carved, highly ornate late 18th century pine and applied gesso twin columned antique chimneypiece. The under shelf, embellished with delicate acanthus leaf detail also seen throughout the fireplace, is set above a frieze centred with a gesso panel of classical figures in a rural setting. The endblocks, with further gesso figures representing the harvest, rest above the two sets of slender twin columns fronting the jambs. Provenance: Purportedly from Thame Park an early Georgian House in Oxfordshire.
English circa 1780.

Please note: There is some cracking to the gesso commensurate with age.
