A mid18th Century Statuary marble Chimney-piece designed by and made in the workshops of Sir Robert Taylor.

Sir Robert Taylor's extraordinary elegant designs in the Rococo manner are instantly recognisable. The Palladian ideals have been lost in favour of the Sea Scroll and Rocaille ornament, and the classical pediment flattened. Nevertheless the square opening remains, but is unrecognisable otherwise.
