A finely carved Statuary Marble George III chimneypiece with a musical theme. The reeded frieze, beneath the moulded shelf, is centred by a carved tablet of a muse playing her harp with a putti beside her holding her music. The musical theme is echoed in the carved trumpets, drums and symbols on the endblocks set above the reeded jambs. This fine Georgian fire surround was at one time in a large house in a village in Hampshire. English, circa 1800 - 1810.
Shown here with fire grate SNo 14862 not included.
