The Heronden is a very detailed English mantel with a dentil cornice and delicately carved frieze. The center tablet features a vase surrounded with swag and foliage motifs. The legs are ornamented with carved bellflowers tied with ribbons and surmounted by end-blockings with Athenian urn enrichments.
