Carved from a variation of rouge griotte marble, this handsome Louis XIV style mantelpiece takes a form of understated restraint. The generous width of the molding is stylistically characteristic, and it is balanced by the simplicity of the lines. The gently arched hearth opening is elegantly framed as are the right angles on either side of the traverse. Filling the space between these frames are the projecting bolection details. The legs take a square form and carry the straight line molding down to faceted block feet. Griotte marble is composed of fossilized shells. When those shells are filled with round white calcite, it is said to resemble the eye of a partridge.
