19th century.

Good condition.

This monumental fireplace was made in Belgian Petit Granit in the second half of the 19th century inspired by the Flemish Renaissance art answering the revival vogue of this period.

Our fireplace shows a very rich sculpted decor and gilt bronze ornamentation. The curved jambs are sculpted with large fluted scrolls surmounted by bronze capitals with arabesque decoration. Ths sides are also adorned with a beautiful sculpted decor of acanthus leaves scrolls and roses. The jambs are holding a large entablature made of Brèche Sanguine, the Petit Granit console architectural elements form the pattern of its decor that keeps going on each side. Six of them are adorned with a standing lion, the mouth opened and holding between his paws a shield, they support a large moulding cornice decorated with an acanthus leaves frieze. The entablature is also adorned with four painted medallions depicting portraits in bronze frames and a romantic scene flanked by two stylized dolphins in scrolls decoration.
Many stylized fleur-de-lys are decorating the cast iron insert framed by a gilt bronze openwork frieze surmounted on its center by a bronze dragon in haut-relief. The cast iron fireback depicts a salamander in flames that we can compare to the emblem of Francis I, famous king of the French Renaissance.

This fireplace is sold with its original cast iron insert but without any marble floor. This one could be made to order (please ask for marble availability).
