The Chevalier Mantel, a 13th century original, boasts an extraordinary stature and history. The mantel’s heavily sculpted legs rise up to two corbels decorated with gargoyle figures which support a shelf enhanced with blazons. The blazon on the right bears a lion and on the left an eagle. The central motif is carved in the shape of an “oriflamme” or medieval banner with pointed streamers.
