A strikingly grand Louis XV Rococo antique fireplace mantel in pale green ribboned Campan marble. Unusually tall for a French chimneypiece, the generous and fine carving in high relief under the large serpentine shelf features an ornate floral shell central cartouche with lower scrolling, flanked by inset panels and large "C" scrolled endblockings with ribbed concave shells supported on further scrolled canted jambs. Provenance: Pall Mall, in the borough of Westminster in London. French mid 19th century.
