Classic antique French fireplace
Classic antique French fireplace in limestone. This genuine antique French fireplace has forward inclining side jambs and noble rounded corbels supported “from behind” by the massive counterweight stones intended to be hidden within the back wall (or even within modern partitioning in its future location). We have partially restored it to smarten it up, but it remains unmistakably an antique reclaimed chimneypiece. This wide limestone mantel is presumed to date from the 17th or 18th century.
- Overall width 186 cm x overall height 143 cm. (73 inches x 56 inches)
