Antique Marble Fireplace – 19127

Monumental 19th century marble fireplace in the manner of British sculpture, John Thomas

The centre keystone has the head of classical goddess Demeter, goddess of the earth, agriculture, harvest and forest.

The pilasters are carved with acanthus leaf arabesques, entwined with birds and field mice. Both spandrels are carved with single birds preening and surrounded by foliate decoration.

Very large in scale and exquisitely carved in white Italian statuary marble, this magnificent piece of English architecture can be compared to similar fireplaces produced by John Thomas.

John Thomas was a British sculpture and architect, who worked on Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Westminster.

Circa 1850
