Statuary and Euofotide Marble

A contemporary Statuary marble chimney-piece in the manner of George Dance with solid Eufotide marble pilasters and applied carved statuary marble.

The refined elegance of Regency period chimney-pieces executed on a large scale has always interested us.

During the Napoleonic wars access to large quantities of Statuary marble became increasingly difficult which contributed to the change in style from the previous century. Many of the chimney-pieces were much lower and were designed this way in order to incorporate larger mirrors, which by then had become far more accessible. This design has been executed from a combination of solid Statuary and very rare Eufotide marble. The design is taken from a drawing by George Dance the Younger probably intended for Coleorton in Lincolnshire.
