Mid-18th Century Georgian English Rococo Fireplace

$213,432.12

About

An important, rare mid-18th century Georgian English Rococo antique fireplace surround in Statuary and Maurin green marble influenced by the designs of Sir Henry Cheere (1703-1781) and Isaac Ware (1704-1766). The serpentine shelf rests above a scrolling frieze centred by a carved spray of oak leaves flanked by simple floral rosettes on a bed of Maurin Marble. The end blocks are adorned with acanthus leaves and trailing oak sprigs above finely carved angled console jambs, with Maurin marble side panels, supported on shaped footblocks. English, circa 1750. Notes: Part of our research revealed that a very similar chimneypiece originated in Woodcote House in Surrey. The house, rebuilt in 1750, was designed by Sir Henry Cheere and the sculptor was Isaac Ware. This chimneypiece bears a close resemblance to their designs. It is also related in style and quality to our SNo 9180.
