This rare and impressive fireplace has a Breche Violette mantle over an arched lintel centering on a bronze coquille mount, issuing scrolling acanthus and foliate vines. The jambs are mounted with patinated bronze Herm figures .The jambs are raised on a stepped base with gilt-bronze foliate and cartouche mounts.
The fireplace is based on a chimney-piece by Jacques Verberckt with gilt bronze mounts by Jacques Caffiéri, supplied for the bedchamber of the Dauphin at Versailles in 1747. A very similar nineteenth century example with gilt-bronze and dark patinated bronze figures of Flora and Zephyr to the jambs, is in the Wallace Collection, Hertford House, London.
