A Louis XVI style Portoro Marble antique Fireplace Surround



Stock No.13412

A large Portoro marble Louis XVI style chimneypiece with a central floral cartouche, beading around the frieze and endblock paterae. The shelf is highly, though delicately veined, with orange and gold, yellow and brown veining.
French, 1860s.

Notes: Varieties of Portoro Marble have been found in different parts of the world but the marble used to make this chimneypiece is of fine quality and almost certainly came from the quarries on the Island of Palmaria, in the gulf of La Spezia, Italy. This marble was discovered and first extracted in Roman times and is rightly regarded worldwide as a luxury marble because of the high quality and the distinctive black and gold veining.
