This late 19th century Marble mantel was carved in France in the style of Louis XV. The marble, possibly of the Portor St. Laurent type, is a lustrous black accented by predominately white veining. The luster is most evident in the deep and sinuous carving of the traverse and legs. The mantel front features the celebrated Louis XV “Trois Rocaille” motif, or “three shells.” A well-defined scallop and bell flower are found in the center, and two additional scallops are found atop the scrolled cabriole pilaster legs. This piece has exceptional and detailed movement. The sides of the legs have round detailed bronze hinged vents, possibly added at a later date.
