A wide and grand white Statuary Marble Louis XV style antique chimneypiece carved in high relief. The stepped breakfront shelf rests on an elaborately carved serpentine frieze centred by an Akroter female mask amid acanthus leaf decoration and trailing floral wreaths above a shaped moulded opening. The c-scrolled floral endblocks with tumbling floral swags sit above prominent panelled angled jambs.
