A Breche Violette Marble fireplace



Stock No.15336

A most attractive Louis XVI style antique fire surround in rare Breche Violette Marble with fine violet, rose, blue and gold veining on a white background. The breakfront shelf, with a moulded edge, rests above a wide fluted frieze flanked by fluted endblocks above stop fluted jambs raised on stepped footblocks. Similar to but slightly larger than chimneypiece SNo 15360.
French, late 19th century.

Notes: Breche Violette Marble is quarried near the town of Serravezza, close to the Carrara region in Italy. It is often found in grand Italian churches and was used to create the columns in the galleries of the Louvre Museum in Paris.
