Daphne and Apollo, antique Louis XVI style fireback with a mythological decor

Width: 34'' ⅝  88cm
Height: 32'' ¼  82cm
Depth: 1'' ⅛  3cm

19th century, France

This cast iron fireback with mythological decor was made during the 19th century. It is decorated with Louis XVI style typical elements such as foliate scrolls, Acanthus leaves and delicate flowers. It has on its center a medallion surrounted by an architectural decor with a palmette on its pediment. The central cartridge is underlined by two branches of laurel attached to each other. The mythological subject represented on this cast iron fireback fireback is the story of Apollo and Daphne who preferred to transform into a laurel rather than to accept advances from Apollo. The latter picked a branch of the precious laurel in order to decorate his lyre and his quiver which are typical ornaments of Louis XVI style.
