Louis XVI Statuary and Ormolu Chimneypiece

Stock No.16313

A fine Louis XVI chimneypiece in a very lightly mottled statuary marble, with fine ormolu mounts. The moulded shelf sits above a very fine frieze, mounted with floral and acanthus paterae. The mounts are very much in the manner of Pierre Gouthiere (1732-1813) who was appointed ciseliste, doreur, bronze chaser and gilder by Aux Menus Plaisirs du Roi, Palais de Versailles in France. This is supported by flat, stop fluted jambs with acanthus reed and husk adornment.

French, early 19th century.
