Stock No: 14730

A substantial Regency fireplace surround in beautifully coloured and veined Ashburton Marble from the Lindhay Quarry in South Devon. The moulded shelf, set above a cushioned panel frieze, rests on a pair of tall half round tapering columns fronting the jambs. English, early 19th century.
Shown here with firegrate SNo14748 not included.

Notes:In 1852 a Devon newspaper 'The Western Times', reported that some large blocks of marble had been excavated from quarries adjoining the ancient Stannary Town of Ashburton. It was suggested at the time that the marble be used for the making of chimneypieces as the veins and colour were considered very decorative and superior to that found in any other quarry in South Devon. This marble was still being quarried at the Linhay Quarry into the late 20th century.
