Expertly reproduced a century later, this antique fireplace mantel exemplifies Louis XVI style. It was hand carved with elegant, simple lines, with a slightly demi-lune mantel and frieze. The frieze displays a central rosette medallion flanked by plain reserves and slightly protruding blocks that surmount the fluted jambs. Note: price is for the 3-piece surround only.
