Made at the beginning of the 20th century, this mantel is attributed to Alphonse Gentil (1872 - 1933) and Eugène Bourdet (1874 -1952). These two men create a stoneware factory in Billancourt, near Paris, in 1901, and participate to the Art Nouveau mouvement, then, after the World Ward I, adapt their creations to the Art Deco taste. We owe them a lot of stoneware creations but also many mosaics that we can find on some buildings’ facades and floors in France. They participate with success to the Exposition International des Arts Décoratifs et industriels modernes in 1925, and closely work with the architects of their period.
Our mantel shows a beautiful enameled stoneware decor typical of the Art Nouveau taste for plants. We find on the jambs, a serie of tiles adorned with laurel leaves, the entablature has the same motif. The angles are adorned with a group of laurel leaves that creates a stylized rose in relief. The slab and the sides are made of oak.

This fireplace is sold with its original enameled insert and with its marble floor.
