With a nicely shaped mantel, this antique French fireplace features a large, boldly carved, rococo shell at the center of the frieze, flanked by horizontal reserves and rococo shell forms on the canted sides. Further rococo detail follows the lines of the canted jambs. This is a very lovely, dressy fireplace.
