Early nineteenth-century Italian chimneypiece in Carrara marble, with a richly carved under-shelf and frieze. The recessed frieze has a central tablet carved with Venus in repose; this is flanked by two pairs of birds, each bearing a garland in their beaks. The endblocks are carved with large Medusa masks which rest on engaged fluted columns with delicately carved capitals of curling acanthus leaves. The fluted columned jambs gently widen to finish in an elegant base.
Italian, circa 1830.

Shown here with fire grate SNo 14629.
