Chateau Peclavé, famille Merle de Massonneau, Comtesse de Dieu de Samazan

Good condition.

This exceptional Neo-Renaissance style fireplace comes from the Péclavé castle in the town of Samazan in the Aquitaine region. The castle belonged to the De Dieu de Samazan family and came into the possession of the Merle de Massonneau family by inheritance, Marie-Thérèse Josèphe De Dieu having married in 1880, Simon Merle de Massonneau d’Aiguillon. The coat of arms of the DE DIEU DE SAMAZAN family is carved on the arched overmantel. The shield has three geometrical features, a square, a circle and a triangle, considered by some to be Greek letters. The blazon’s crest bears a count’s crown, a helm with a hackle and a banner engraved with the words “MONTJOYE St DENIS”. The blazon is supported by winged lions standing in profile and carved in high relief. On either side are shields, swords, lances and halberds. Laurel leaves complete the decoration. Such use of wood and of a large decorative features above the mantel evokes the Renaissance style. The jambs are fluted columns carved in full relief and have a very unusual design of a carved rounded base. They rise up to composite order capitals, decorated with acanthus leaves and volutes. The consoles above are decorated with square rosettes, which are characteristic of the Louis XVI style. Elaborately carved, this mantel is of the highest quality and is a rare work of art.
