Antique farmhouse fireplace in French limestone
Antique farmhouse fireplace in French limestone. This authentic antique French fireplace has a simple rather austere charm, and is relatively narrow. Although featuring carved moulded profiles, they are not over-elaborate. Its subtly inclined side jambs and rounded corbels add nobility. It has had some restoration work to smarten it up, but remains unmistakably antique and reclaimed. This chimneypiece could be as old as 17th century, although with “country” styles in rural France evolving slowly it could be as recent as 19th century.
