Neoclassical antique fireplace surround
This magnificent light emperador marble fireplace surround is just looks like the famouse Parisian chimneypiece displayed in Metropolitan Museum since 1775! The interchangable influence of design in marble fireplace mantel makes these two alike! Just like the fireplace's flutes carving legs, what makes this Louis XVI antique fireplace surround more special is the egg-and-dart carving and center ribbon carving on the shelf and the concave and convex bas-relief all over the fireplace surround ! The matched fireplace hearth is a rare big chuch of marble surface without delicate carving, which show the raw pattern of the light emperador marble itself!
