    A rare 19th century Statuary Marble and ormolu chimneypiece in the French Regency style with a large, exquisitely carved 18th century panel after Clodion (1738 – 1814).

    The fireplace, originally in the drawing room of Brook House, located at 113 Park Lane in Mayfair London, was made to accommodate the extraordinary18th century panel which was probably acquired during a Grand Tour.
    The panel depicts 'Le Triomphe d'Amphitrite' who can be seen in the centre riding a dolphin attended by putti, tritons(mermen) and nereids(mermaids). Finely applied ormolu, set beneath the cornice shelf and on the jambs and sides, frames the panel and there are intricately detailed ormolu rams heads and tumbling festoons adorning each jamb above which are corbels embellished with large ormolu acanthus leaves.
    Provenance: Brook House, Park Lane, Mayfair, London. English late 1860s.

    Notes on Amphitrite & Poseidon.
    Amphitrite was one of the fifty Nereids who were attendants of the sea-god Poseidon. On first seeing Amphitrite Poseidon fell deeply in love and ardently pursued her. When she fled his wooing he sent dolphins after her who finally persuaded her to return to become his bride. The bearded figure on the far right of the panel could well be Poseidon himself.

    Notes on Brook House.
    Brook House was built in the French style from 1867-1869 by the architect Thomas Henry Wyatt for Sir Dudley Coutts Marjoribanks, the 1st Lord Tweedmouth. The interiors were designed by the renowned 19th century decorators Wright & Mansfield who were strongly influenced by French design. Please see photo below of the Brook House Drawing Room which shows the fireplace in situ. The photograph is courtesy of the Country Life Archives and was taken by Charles Latham in 1902 for The King Magazine and later included in 'London Interiors' written by John Cornforth and published by Country Life.

    Ernest Cassell, private banker to Edward VII, bought Brook House from Lord Tweedmouth in 1904 and lived there with his granddaughter Edwina Ashley who later became Countess Mountbatten when she married Louis Mountbatten in 1922. Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma was the uncle of the Queen's consort, the Duke of Edinburgh. Their marriage was attended by the then King and Queen and the Prince of Wales and the reception was held in Brook House. The couple later moved into a suite on the third floor. The house was subsequently demolished and redeveloped in the 1930's.

The Regency period in Great Britain emerged after King George III was deemed unfit to rule - his son ruled as his proxy during this time and was known as the Prince Regent. Although The Regency period lasted a mere nine years (1811-1820), the Regency aesthetic extended beyond this time, encompassing emerging trends in literature, fashion and architecture - as is evidenced in the intricate designs of antique Regency fireplaces and chimneypieces.

A period of elegance
The Regency style is often noted for its elegance and advancements in the fine arts and architecture - throughout this era major social, political and economic changes were also taking place. During this period Regency fireplaces evolved to accommodate the larger mirrors favoured at the time - fireplaces were consequently made lower to allow for this new fashion, a technique already used in French fireplace designs many years prior.

A return to antiquity
Antique Regency fireplaces embody a departure from the glamorous, intricate designs of the past, into a simpler, more austere style. The major source of inspiration for Regency fire surrounds was found in Greek and Roman antiquity, from which designers borrowed both structural and ornamental elements. Antique Regency fire surrounds reflect a more reserved approach to the use of classical ornamentation. Corniced shelves were made simpler, and reeding became a popular decorating technique in many designs. Regency fireplaces embodied a more refined elegance than previous Georgian or French styles, featuring smooth lines and gentle curves. Due to their classic design, these fireplaces have become increasingly popular as additions to more modern interiors - incorporating Regency décor brings a classical and elegant feel to any home.
