Wooden Louis XV Fireplace




Antique Fireplace Louis XV Style

Circa 1745.



Dimensions : 116 H x 164 W x 40 D cm.

Original : Grand salon,

18th century period house, Brussels.

Wooden Fireplace surrounds are much rarer than those in marble or stone. The remarkable and very sensitive sculpture-work magnificently embellishes this unique serpentine-lined style which reigned at the height of the Louis XV Fireplace 

The mantelpiece is bow-shaped, and one can make out the Rocaille shapes on which the floral and plant motifs in high relief are based.

This antiqes furniture magnificent piece can hold pride of place on its own, even if in the past it surely was part of a unit of sculpted wooden panelling. It will easily embellish any room that one would wish to be as welcoming as it is beautiful.
