Ashburton Marble Bolection Fireplace Mantel


Stock No.14737

A Baroque style Ashburton Marble antique Bolection fireplace surround in the soft pale pinks and greys typical of the finer examples of this marble most likely to have come from the Lindhay Quarry in Devon in south west England.
English, late 19th century.

Notes: In 1852 a Devon newspaper 'The Western Times', reported that some large blocks of marble had been excavated from quarries adjoining the ancient Stannary Town of Ashburton. It was suggested at the time that the marble be used for the making of chimneypieces as the veins and colour were considered very decorative and superior to that found in any other quarry in South Devon. This marble was still being quarried at the Linhay Quarry into the late 20th century.
