A refined and elegant Edwardian Neoclassical style antique fireplace, in white statuary and Verdi Antico marble. The central plaque is decorated with a finely carved urn surrounded by bell flower swags tied with ribbons. The inlaid Verdi Antico Greek key pattern frieze panels are flanked by oval floral paterae end blocks, set beneath the deeply moulded and stepped shelf with dental and pearl bead detail. The jambs are in the form of subtly scrolling, fluted console pilasters over small footblocks. The fireplace opening is framed by a simple moulded architrave.
English, circa 1910.
