    An important, rare mid-18th century Georgian English Rococo antique fireplace surround in Statuary and Maurin Green Marble influenced by the designs of Sir Henry Cheere (1703-1781) and Isaac Ware (1704-1766). The serpentine shelf rests above a scrolling frieze centred by a carved spray of oak leaves flanked by simple floral rosettes on a bed of Maurin Marble. The end blocks are adorned with acanthus leaves and trailing oak sprigs above finely carved angled console jambs, with Maurin Marble side panels, supported on shaped footblocks. English circa 1750.

    Notes: Part of our research revealed that a very similar chimneypiece originated in Woodcote House in Surrey. The house, rebuilt in 1750, was designed by Sir Henry Cheere and the sculptor was Isaac Ware. This chimneypiece bears a close resemblance to their designs. It is also related in style and quality to our SNo 9180.

    A charming and imposing Louis XV style antique Rococo chimneypiece in Fleur de Pecher Marble with exceptional ormolu mounts by Francois Linke (1855-1946). The serpentine shelf rests above a panelled frieze centred with an applied ormolu shell cartouche, cushioned on trailing acanthus leaves, above a wide serpentine opening. The tapering, canted jambs, embellished with very fine applied ormolu female terms and with delicate ormolu foliate mounts at each foot, are supported on elegant footblocks. French, late 19th century.

    Notes: Francois Linke was a leading Parisian ébéniste of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and this fireplace was almost certainly commissioned by a client around that time. His signature can be clearly seen on the shoulder of the female term to the left.

    In the nineteenth-century, François Linke was considered one of the finest cabinet makers and designers in France, and one of the finest in the world. Born in the small village of Pankraz in Bohemia - now Jitrava in the Czech Republic - François Linke was the second son of eleven siblings. His father was a farmer and sent François to be apprenticed to a local cabinetmaker at just thirteen years of age, after which he settled in Paris in 1878; only five years after his apprenticeship had been completed.

    The applied ormolu decorations designed by Léon Messagé were an essential part of Linke’s allure and brought him to the forefront of the Paris makers of meubles de haut luxe. At the famous Exposition Universelle in 1900, one of Linke’s finest items - a grand bureau - won a gold medal. The Art Journal reported in 1900 on Linke’s stand:
    ‘The work of M. Linke … was an example of what can be done by seeking inspiration amongst the classic examples of Louis XV and XVI without in any great sense copying these great works. M. Linke’s work was original in the true sense of the word, and as such commended itself to the intelligent seeker after the really artistic things of the Exhibition. Wonderful talent was employed in producing the magnificent pieces of furniture displayed...’

    Linke’s work was so fine that he was invited to undertake an extraordinary commission to furnish the Ras al-Tin Palace in Alexandria with over 1,000 pieces of furniture and decoration for King Fuad of Egypt; the single largest furniture commission ever conceived, which eclipsed even Versailles. It is here that other examples of his exquisite marble and ormolu chimneypieces can be found.

    The designs for these majestic Rococo chimneypieces were in fact inspired by the chimneypieces of Versailles. These were designed in the late 18th century by Jacques Verberckt with gilt bronze mounts by Jacques Caffiéri. The two master craftsmen embodied the Louis XV Rocaille style of the eighteenth-century. When Linke and Messagé were allowed access to these designs, they sought to reproduce both the style and quality for a nineteenth-century audience. As a result, the Louis XV style saw a great revival. The chimneypiece in our collection has figural ormolu mounts almost identical to those found in the sumptuous Council Cabinet of Versailles. Linke has subtly updated the design by choosing a soft, fleur de pecher marble to provide the perfect backdrop for the glowing ormolu.

    This chimneypiece is a testament to both Linke and Messagé's exquisite craftsmanship and represents the finest of nineteenth-century design. If you would like any further information about this piece, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Provenance: The Earls of Minto, Minto House, Roxburghshire, Scotland.
    English, circa 1750-1760

    Shown here with andirons SNo 10202 now sold.

    Minto House Notes:
    This 18th century chimneypiece was selected by the 4th Earl of Minto to be installed in the Octagonal Drawing Room of Minto House by the decorators W. Turner Lord & Company, of 120 Mount Street, Grosvenor Square, London, whose estimate for the works was dated 18 September 1891. The tower of an earlier property had been incorporated by William Adam in his design for Minto House around 1740 and the House has subsequently undergone various expansions. One was carried our by Archibald Elliot at the beginning of the 19th century, it was further altered by William Playfair in 1837 and was finally enlarged by Robert Lorimer at the end of the 19th century. Minto House was owned by the Elliott family and the Earls of Minto for several centuries but from the mid 1960s it began to fall into disrepair and suffering from increasing neglect it slowly deteriorated to a state where it was finally demolished in 1992.

    Shown here with fire grate SNo 13081 not included in the price.

    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.

Antique Fireplace Mantels and Chimneypieces in the Rococo Style of the 18th and 19th centuries.  This delicate and playful style, regarded by some at the time as risqué, was established in the 1730’s in France and quickly became widespread throughout Europe.  Rococo fireplaces, mantels and chimneypieces in marble, stone and wood ( frequently gilded in the 18th century  ), were again prolific in the Rococo Revival period of the early to mid 19th century mostly in Italy and France but many fine and grand examples were exported in great numbers to England, Ireland and Scotland. During the reign of Louis XV and the preceding Regence period a more feminine frivolity and intimacy held sway in the arts as a reaction to the monumental formality of the Baroque period.  In England and Germany the Rococo style came under the influence of the Oriental. This was evident in the chimneypiece mantels of Thomas Chippendale. At its best the Rococo style was meant to lighten the mood, to be enjoyed and to encourage gaiety and delight.

Our collection of Antique Rococo fireplaces, chimneypiece and mantels, contains an impressive range in marble, stone and wood. They will enhance any home whether you live in a period house or if you simply want to bring an element of period features to a more modern room design.
