A stately and very well proportioned Georgian style breakfront chimneypiece in statuary and verde antico marble. The freeze, inlaid with verde antico blind flutes and centred by a finely carved 18th century tablet depicting Mercury and Venus instructing Cupid, is flanked with simple rectangular endblocks typical of the Georgian period. The fluted columns, surmounted by Ionic capitals, are of a very fine quality. The fireplace opening is edged with egg and dart decoration. Irish circa 1850.

Note: The 18th century tablet replaces the original simpler 19th century tablet of a female mask.
