The statuary marble insert is of later date. The mantelpiece compares to two further examples, one sold in London in 1972, the other in New York in 1973. In both cases the design is firmly based on Johnson’s drawing published first in 1758 in his untitled collection of designs and again in the second edition, titled One Hundred and Fifty New Designs, in 1761.
